Mathematics Department

Chair: Prof. Julie Melberg

The Mathematics Department endeavors to develop students’ numerical and analytical abilities to investigate, formulate, analyze and articulate solutions to problems within the discipline of mathematics.

The Computer Science Bachelor of Science major endeavors to develop student analytic and algorithmic abilities to investigate, formulate, analyze and articulate solutions to problems in the design, development and analysis of computer hardware and software in both theoretical and practical contexts while seeking to further their knowledge of God's world.

Mathematics Program Learning Outcomes

Students will:       

  • Write, critique and interpret various forms of mathematical proof.
  • Calculate, apply and synthesize core content in mathematics. 
  • Utilize effective strategies in problem solving, including data analysis and multiple representations of mathematical ideas (visualization/graphs, symbolic notations and numerical data).
  • Clearly communicate mathematical concepts, vocabulary and notation.

Computer Science Program Learning Outcomes

Students will:

  • Demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills in computer science.
  • Apply algorithmic, mathematical, and scientific reasoning to a variety of computational problems.
  • Articulate, apply, and analyze scholarly resources to integrate best practices in the discipline of computer science.
  • Create and implement software systems that meet specific design and performance requirements.
  • Apply the Christian teaching of vocations to practice ethical decision making within computer science.
