Secondary Education — Mathematics, B.A.
Lyndon’s Mathematics program combines traditional mathematical approaches with the latest computer technology, keeping the instruction fresh and relevant. The students prepare for a wide range of positions in fields such as teaching, engineering, finance, insurance, investments, and social services. Small class sizes mean a highly individualized, educational experience. Lyndon students become part of a tight-knit community of talented and engaged learners.
Computers and graphing calculators transform theoretical principles into visual learning and teaching tools. There is also an opportunity for qualified students to work in the department as peer mathematics tutors.
Experiential learning is a cornerstone of the Lyndon educational experience. Our students work as tutors, in paid internships at local businesses including Garnet Hill and Numia technologies, engage in student teaching, and create presentations of student work for conferences.
Teaching candidates in the Secondary Education program work toward a Pure Math degree in order to ensure they have a deep and thorough understanding of their content area.
