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.
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 ideas from mathematics to other fields of knowledge and to communicate mathematics effectively.
All five required Mathematics courses for the minor must be passed with a C- or higher, and at least three must be completed at Roosevelt. Interested students who have completed a college calculus course that did not transfer in as MATH 231 CALCULUS I (such as MATH 202 APPLIED CALCULUS FOR HEALTH SCIENCE AND BUSINESS) are encouraged to discuss course options with the department chair. Although courses that are cross-listed as math and are used for a major may not be double counted for the math minor, if a significant number are taken at Roosevelt it may be possible to use them towards satisfying the residency requirement (i.e., at least three math courses must be taken at Roosevelt for the minor). Students with a large amount of transfer credits are encouraged to contact the department chair to discuss possibilities.
