Overview

Each year, many students in the Mathematics program of Berea College are placed in a wide variety of research and internship programs. Through the College Labor Program, prospective mathematics teachers are provided opportunities to develop skills in working one-on-one with students in the Developmental Mathematics classroom setting.

Students interested in gaining certification to teach in the area of Mathematics (8-12) must double major in Teaching and Curriculum with Certification and in Mathematics.

Mathematics is both a tool for solving practical problems as well as a very creative field of study, combining logic and precision with intuition and imagination. The basic goal of mathematics is to reveal and explain patterns—whether the pattern appears as the growth a population of animals, electrical impulses in a computer, fluctuations in stock market prices, or as intricate detail of an abstract geometric figure.

Each application to the Mathematics Major or Mathematics Education Major is considered individually and is approved or rejected based upon departmental discussion of the applicant’s potential to satisfactorily complete the major. For this reason, students interested in pursuing either major should begin taking Mathematics courses as early as possible.
