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. Our department prepares students for careers as actuaries, business managers, educators, engineers, 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.

Through the study of formal theories, students strengthen their critical reasoning skills and deepen their mathematical knowledge. Working on a variety of projects and problems allows students to develop a broad set of quantitative and qualitative problem-solving skills, leading our graduates to careers in mathematics, applied mathematics, education, or advanced study.
