Applied Math

deptlink-chem-math-phys-2.jpgGod's design and wisdom in creation is evident in the mathematical arrangement and order of the universe. A person cannot turn a wheel, design a machine, or study his environment without some knowledge of mathematics. As stewards of God’s creation, we are given the precious tool of mathematics. The applied math major offers training focused on the mathematics used in science and engineering, but also offers training in the theory of mathematics.
