Mathematics & Physics

Printer-friendly version

The Mathematics/Physics Department offers a variety of courses, including pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, statistics, calculus, differential equations, astronomy, physics, and physical science. Students are recommended for placement in mathematics on the basis of their high school preparation and their placement test score. The department faculty serve as advisers for students majoring in the areas of mathematics and/or science and for those in the pre-environmental science and forestry programs. They also serve as advisers for undeclared majors. Physics and physical science courses develop within the student an understanding of basic physical principles and an appreciation of the natural environment. Technical programs require a firm foundation in fundamental physics. To that end, courses also encourage and develop the student’s competence in the use of logical procedures in problem solving. Math courses are taught to develop students’ abilities in logical reasoning, problem solving, and critical thinking, as well as to build algebraic reasoning and calculus skills.

Mission

Provides mathematics and physics foundation courses for engineering and engineering technology students. The department also provides general education mathematics and natural science courses for all students.
