About

By taking the Mathematics program from Amherst College you will acquire both proficiency at calculation and a theoretical understanding of single-variable calculus, multivariable calculus, and linear algebra.

Overview

At Amherst College, the study of mathematics and statistics covers a wide range of pure and applied topics. The ideas of mathematics and statistics are not only beautiful and valuable in themselves but also relevant to many other disciplines, including biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, environmental studies and physics, as well as many of the social sciences.

Our introductory course offerings include Calculus, Linear Algebra and Applied Statistics. For students interested in mathematics as a liberal art, we also have courses such as Number Theory, Mathematical Modeling and Discrete Mathematics. In these courses, suitable for majors and non-majors alike, students learn the power of applications and enjoy the satisfaction of constructing rigorous proofs. For students who wish to inquire more deeply into the subject, a major in mathematics or statistics offers a full range of courses, together with the possibility of doing a senior honors thesis in either major.

Learning Goals

Upon completion of the Mathematics program from Amherst College, we expect our graduates:

  • To have developed an ability to read and understand mathematical proofs, as well as to construct and communicate their own mathematical proofs.
  • To have demonstrated in a variety of courses the ability to learn and apply new mathematical concepts, definitions, theorems, reasoning skills, and proof skills.
  • For honors students, to have delved deeply into an advanced topic and written a clear and detailed exposition in the form of a senior thesis.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Calculus with Algebra
  • Calculus
  • Statistics via Modeling
  • Voting and Elections: A Mathematical Perspective
