In keeping with the mission of the College, the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Regis College provides a stimulating and supportive environment that empowers students of traditional and non-traditional background to realize and develop their potential in mathematics, information technology, and related areas.
Graduates of the B.A. program in Mathematics Education will be life-long learners who demonstrate:
- Knowledge and applied skills in calculus, statistics, linear algebra and a distribution of other branches of mathematics for education.
- The ability to determine the validity of a given argument and will be able to construct mathematical proofs independently.
- An understanding of the mathematical basis of common algorithms, and the ability to calculate accurately and efficiently.
- The ability to solve problems, including applications of pure mathematics, by means of intuition, creativity, reasoning, estimation, and the experience gained through the study of specific examples and mathematical models.
- The ability to communicate and educate about mathematical ideas clearly using correct mathematical terminology and proper mathematical notation.
- Know about different student learning styles and adapt pedagogical techniques to effectively educate students in mathematics and quantitative reasoning approaches.
- Utilize innovative approaches adopting technology for purposes of effective mathematics education.
The department offers the necessary in-depth study to prepare the mathematics majors to pursue career in mathematics, mathematics teaching, and related areas, including an Information Technology minor, as well as several courses designed to meet students’ individual needs and their choices of programs of study. The department strives to instill in all students the logical, computational, and problem-solving skills that further their education.
Licensure in Secondary Education with a Mathematics Education major is offered in partnership with the Education Department.
