Solve problems in education

If you understand both the grace and order of mathematics and are enthusiastic about using in your daily life, then becoming a math educator may be the path for you. Through a thorough understanding of calculus, you will use differential equations, sequences and series, vector-valued functions and partial derivatives. You will study probability and statistics and learn how to help explain data analysis to others. You will learn to motivate and encourage students in a topic that can be difficult for some to grasp and challenging to hold energy in a classroom.

Program Overview

The Math Education Minor will help you intellectually inspire students with exercises and problems that help expand the mind. You will teach skills that can be used in practical applications for the rest of their lives. Whether teaching early fundamentals with a puzzle all the way to statistics with survey data, you will learn to engage students with math. You will open their mind to new possibilities in fields such as business, engineering and architecture. You will also learn how to teach with computer systems in the classroom. Using technology effectively while managing your classroom is essential. You will be able to explore the Christian worldview in a technological society and be able to lead discussions with students about this relationship.

What to Expect
