The curriculum objectives of the Mathematics program helps students gain basic knowledge and skills to make mathematical contributions to society in the form of pure mathematics or mathematics applied to the other disciplines. 

Students learn to:

  • Develop effective thinking and communication skills
  • Recognize the value of mathematical theory as useful and enlightening in both pure and applied contexts 
  • Use technology effectively, both as a tool for solving problems and as an aid to exploring mathematical ideas 
  • Develop facility with visualization, see connections among mathematical areas, and appreciate the power of abstract thinking by combining ideas from linear algebra and calculus. 

Program Highlights

  • Participate in undergraduate research, service learning, and a variety of activities that will enhance your education and prepare you to be successful in your career.
  • Work in a close and collaborative atmosphere - classes ranging from 5-25 students.
  • Learn about today's most relevant areas of mathematical science, including computer science, applied modeling, and statistics.
  • Be prepared to take the actuarial exams.
  • Earn your provisional NY State teaching certification.
  • Work out math problems with professors and fellow students in the Math Lab.

Adolescence Education in Mathematics

As a Daemen Adolescence Education in Math major, you’ll be engaged in both mathematics and education classes throughout your time at Daemen. Students initially concentrate on core math courses that provide them with the knowledge and skills to make mathematical contributions to society through pure mathematics or mathematics applied to other disciplines. Education classes prepare students to have the confidence and preparation for a career in education. Adolescence Education in Mathematics Page
