In-Demand Skills

Advancements in technology have created a growing demand for data analysts and statisticians. As Christians, we are called to recognize that God is the Creator of all things, including mathematics. He designed us to discern patterns and use those patterns to learn about his creation. We have a unique opportunity to learn about God’s character through the lens of mathematics while also serving those around us in our chosen professions.

Taught by Industry Experts

OKWU’s math faculty bring over 50 years of teaching experience to the table and are dedicated to making sure every student finds success in the classroom.

Classes include calculus, discrete mathematics, and abstract algebra

Featured Core Classes

Calculus & Analytical Geometry 1

Calc 1 is one of your foundational “math major” courses. We begin with an algebra review and quickly move into properties of curves and limits, which help us develop the concept of derivatives. From there we study integrals, applications of the differential calculus, and areas between curves. These concepts will carry throughout many of the other courses in the program.

Modern geometry

Think all the angles of a triangle have a sum of 180 degrees? Maybe… or maybe not. Instead of working on “flat” (aka Euclidian) surfaces for our geometric properties, we start working on different types of surfaces like spheres, hyperbolic surfaces (think a horse saddle), and elliptical geometries.

Discrete Mathematics

Not your typical “math” course. It serves as an introductory course which includes logic, sets and sequences, elementary combinatorics, counting methods, induction and recursion, relations, Boolean algebra, functions, lattices, partially ordered sets, and graph theory.
