Mathematics (BA) Program Assessment
Our mission is to provide each mathematics major the opportunity to develop breadth and depth in theoretical and applied areas of mathematics, including computer and mathematics for teaching. Students will acquire abstract thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills which are applicable in nearly every area of life. The department aims to provide a supportive learning environment where students are given an opportunity to develop mathematically to their maximum potential. Students, with guidance from faculty, may participate in research opportunities in mathematics individually or in collaboration with their peers as well as in co-curricular activities such as seminar talks and conferences. After graduating from York College, the mathematics major may pursue graduate studies toward an advanced degree and/or work in his/her chosen career.
- Students should be able to demonstrate the ability to think logically and construct logical arguments, and to apply mathematical proof techniques in a wide variety of mathematical areas, including algebra and analysis.
- Students should be able to demonstrate the ability to analyze and solve problems in applied mathematics, both through theoretical and applied techniques.
- Students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the core concepts of differential and integral calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra.
- Students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the problems and techniques of classical and modern mathematics.
The Mathematics (BA) Program is part of the school of Arts and Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science Department
