Mathematics Education

Overview

The Mathematics Education emphasis is designed for the student interested in teaching mathematics, whether at the primary, secondary, or college level. On top of receiving a strong foundation in mathematics, students in this emphasis also receive academic preparation for their future careers as educators. After graduation, they have the option of smoothly transitioning into TMU’s teaching credential program, which has a nearly 100% job placement rate.

Students in the Mathematics Education emphasis will:

  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of fundamental algebraic structures (e.g. groups and rings)
  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of number theory and a familiarity with the history of mathematics
  • Demonstrate a basic working knowledge of the nature and applications of discrete structures
  • Demonstrate a basic mastery of the principles of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries

Due to the ever-increasing influence of technology, the study of mathematics is crucial for logical thinking and preparation for any technical vocation. The Department of Mathematics provides a thorough and robust understanding of mathematics as a part of God’s creation in a concentrated effort to integrate faith and learning. The small class sizes are optimal for detailed, personal, and focused training in each area. Math students at TMU are challenged and strengthened incalculably through their studies to thrive in any math-based job they enter after graduation.
