Science and Mathematics
critically using of quantitative information
The required courses from the Science and Mathematics Department will enhance your ability to think quantitatively, critically, and logically, and illustrate the manner in which problems of a quantitative nature are solved through the use of algorithms and logical thought.
You will study fundamental mathematical functions in Algebra and Trigonometry and explore the basic concepts of analysis in either Calculus I or Applied Calculus, depending on your major. You'll then take additional math and science courses to develop the ability to carefully collect, organize, and analyze data to better problem solve.
After completing the General Education Requirements in Science and Mathematics students will be able to:
- explain and apply theories of physics and chemistry in relevant contexts;
- identify and explain specialized terms of physics and chemistry;
- identify and employ applicable tools, technologies, and methods when presented with questions and problems involving physics, chemistry, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus; and
- use scientific methods and mathematical principles when reasoning and making decisions in the context of their everyday lives.
