The mathematics program at High Point University seeks to provide courses that will introduce students to the logic and foundations of mathematics so that they will build skills in problem solving and deductive and analytical reasoning. These are the skills that are in demand in many of today’s most sought-after career fields.

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES MISSION:

To engage students deeply and broadly in the discovery, learning, and communication of concepts in the quantitative sciences. As a pillar of liberal arts education, the mathematical sciences foster the growth and enhancement of students’ intellectual curiosity and lifelong learning.

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES VISION:

To be a community that is responsive, excellent, active, thriving, innovative, vital, and engaging through:

  • Research, Teaching, and Outreach: We strive to be readily available to attend to the needs of students, faculty, and staff across the university. The faculty provide service to the university and broader community, engage in continual curricular improvements and innovative design, and are committed to quality teaching, scholarship, and leadership in the profession.We are informed about the most current pedagogical and research trends and technology in mathematics, actuarial science, mathematical economics, and data science. We experiment and implement new models and ideas into our classrooms and our research programs.The faculty are collaborative, inclusive, and team-oriented and strive for diversity and dynamism in pedagogy, research, high-impact practices and educational approach
  • Rich Educational Opportunities and Growth: We share common interests and goals which fosters our professional development, cultivates a vibrant department community, enhances student learning, and promotes collaboration with other disciplines. We strategically design and develop courses, programs, co-curricular experiences, and activities that align with our department’s goals and the university’s academic strategic plan.
  • Student Success: We foster in students active engagement in promoting a just society through professional practice, leadership, and scholarship. Our program prioritizes providing students with strong foundations across the mathematical sciences, building skills in problem solving, deductive, analytical, and statistical reasoning, and data analysis. Students learn how to identify patterns and connect data, computations, and human discovery.

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES CORE VALUES:

  • Through creative inquiry and problem solving we promote excellence in critical thinking and mathematical reasoning.
  • We create an environment that allows students to discover the beauty and power of mathematics and its applications.
  • We prepare students to fluently communicate mathematical and statistical ideas, orally and in writing, to both a technical and lay audience.
  • We equip students with the skills necessary for success in both graduate programs and quantitative careers.
  • We inspire students to extend their education beyond the classroom and take initiative to become lifelong learners.
  • We promote faculty/student interactions, both inside and outside the classroom, engaging in high-impact practices to cultivate a diverse and inclusive community of scholars.
  • We develop students who employ statistical reasoning and data literacy in order to identify patterns, make predictions, and inform fact-based decisions.
