Opening Doors with Math

The Mathematics Department offers a range of courses for a variety of needs and plans of study. We support the professional and technical programs as well as the transfer programs. We offer several PreCollege courses that satisfy requirements for students obtaining certificates and students preparing for college level mathematics courses. Our college level courses prepare students for the sciences and engineering curriculum, satisfy prerequisites for admission to colleges of business and education, and create the foundation of undergraduate mathematics curriculum for math majors.

Math is Foundational

A background in Mathematics can open many doors for you. Watch the We Use Math Video from BYU Math and see what's possible if you study math.

The department offers courses in a number of formats and times including online, day, and evening classes. Our precollege classes (Math 77, 87 and 97) uses a mastery-based approach with appropriate use of technology. Students in Math 40, 77, 87, and 97 have the option to enroll in the Math Center for variable credit options to connect learning with students' individual pacing needs.

Students in all courses have access to numerous resources to help them complete their coursework, including the Tutoring Center in the Learning Support Center, the STEM study room, online tutoring through eTutoring.org, and a Math Center for students in precollege math courses.

The department participates each year in the AMATYC Student Math League Exam. Students who enjoy challenging themselves in mathematics are welcome to participate in the exams each fall and winter quarter.

We welcome you to the department and to the college!
