Overview

The latest technologies have been incorporated into the curriculum. The Mathematics programme from Marist College traces the historical developments of mathematics while also incorporating the latest technologies into the curriculum. In addition, students majoring in mathematics can pursue a secondary school provisional teaching certification.

Key facts:

The first two years of the mathematics program include a four-credit calculus sequence, linear algebra, and a recently introduced course in Mathematical Reasoning. Basic mathematical proof techniques and subject material needed for upper level mathematics courses are taught in the Reasoning course. Upper level courses provide students opportunities for both a broad introduction to higher level mathematics, as well as in-depth study of selected areas.

In addition, we recognize our responsibilities to the community we serve, and strive to provide opportunity for continuing education at many levels through both certificate programs and undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Sensitivity to the non-traditional student is reflected in our scheduling and mode of delivery, as well as the content of our courses.

The Department seeks to ensure that all Marist students are given a basic understanding of mathematical reasoning and some experience of its application. More advanced techniques and interpretative skills are taught to those whose chosen disciplines require them. The Department offers major and minor courses of study that initiate students into the active practice and use of mathematics. Mathematics majors are provided with the background necessary to pursue careers in industry, to teach at the secondary school level, or to succeed in further graduate study.

The Department also actively supports the scholarly activities of both its faculty and students. It strives to provide appropriate mathematical services as well as to make the principles and use of mathematics known to the wider community outside of Marist.
