Mathematics, Minor

Offered in: Chicago | Schaumburg

At Roosevelt, the minor in mathematics allows students from other fields to gain additional analytical, quantitative, and problem-solving skills.  Students will also learn to apply the ideas of mathematics to other fields of knowledge and to communicate mathematics effectively.

Mathematics is a beautiful and interesting subject that involves statistics, numbers, functions, shapes, and structures.  These concepts are logically interconnected and develop into a fascinating theory.  They are also used to solve real world problems from a wide variety of areas, including science, computer science, social science, finance, and business.  The study of mathematics provides training in disciplined thought and analysis.
