Mathematics Major (A)
The Mathematics Department at Concordia University primary goal is to build competencies in the understanding, communication, and application of mathematics. Concordia math students will gain an appreciation of mathematics as an appropriate discipline to investigate God’s universe as they analyze mathematical structures and apply mathematical problem-solving strategies to a variety of real-world problems.
The Mathematics Major will give you a deep comprehension of areas like calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, geometry, abstract algebra and real analysis. You'll be able to solve and understand differential equations, sequences and series, vector-valued functions, partial derivatives, functions and algorithms.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Demonstrate knowledge of mathematics, including algebra, geometry, probability, and analysis
- Apply mathematical problem-solving strategies in a variety of real-world applications
- Demonstrate the ability to apply mathematical statistics to interpret information
- Demonstrate the ability to prove and disprove conjectures
- Communicate mathematical concepts in oral, symbolic, and written forms
- Apply and appreciate mathematics as an appropriate paradigm in order to investigate God’s creation
