Mathematics and Computer Information Systems
Our department prepares students for careers as actuaries, business managers, computer scientists, educators, engineers, meteorologists, programmers, systems analysts, and business owners. Our academically rigorous curriculum ensures that each of our students graduate with both theoretical and applied knowledge of their field. This is accomplished, in part, by the technology which is integrated throughout the curriculum.
We may regard mathematics as a traditional discipline, but the Mathematics program at Lyndon has been in the forefront in responding to academic changes, particularly with regard to technology. The relatively new and rapidly changing Computing Program is similarly responsive to change and growth.
Graphing calculators and computer software are employed to help introduce ideas and as aids in understanding the subject matter. These tools enable students to learn independently—a real asset in the real world. The department also provides quality services to other academic departments at Lyndon.
The job placement rate of graduates of Lyndon’s mathematics department is more than 91 percent.
