Mathematics Department

 

Department of Mathematics at Brigham Young University seeks to 1) teach mathematics and mathematical thinking at the appropriate levels to enable students to employ critical analysis, thoughtful synthesis, logical deduction, and insightful problem-solving, 2) extend the frontiers of knowledge in pure and applied mathematics in ways that involve student researchers, enrich instruction, support the major and graduate programs of the department, and contribute to our understanding of the universe, and 3) build a unified and collegial atmosphere in which faculty and students support each other in teaching and learning, while focusing on student achievement and recognizing and rewarding excellence.
