Overview

It does this within a Christ-centered, liberal arts framework that encourages breadth as well as depth of knowledge. 

Mathematics, the study of patterns and structures more than of numbers, is presented as a means to enable students to practice independent thinking so as not to be shaken from the eternal foundation on which our moral and spiritual growth is based. Students develop analytical reasoning and the ability to apply mathematical logic to solve problems, thus improving critical thinking abilities.

Learning Outcomes

The student in the Mathematics program at the Bethany Lutheran College will be able to:

  • Formulate and apply algorithms to solve mathematical problems, implementing technology when appropriate, and judge the validity of the results.
  • Model and analyze real world problems by reformulating these problems in a mathematics context through drawing inferences from data represented graphically, verbally, numerically, or symbolically.
  • Organize and explain mathematical ideas in written and verbal form, including proper use of terms and notation.
  • Demonstrate mastery of the core concepts in algebra and analysis.
  • Develop and evaluate mathematical proofs.
  • Elucidate the interdependency of different areas of mathematics and the connections between mathematics and other disciplines.
