    The department is committed to sustaining excellence in all its teaching and learning experiences as well as fostering an ethos of collegiality and purposeful work. Our main objectives are to provide for students an appreciation for mathematics and its application to other discipline, to encourage higher order thinking and problem solving skills, and to prepare students for further study and employment. In engendering Team work, we will: communicate team goals and acknowledge accomplishments. For instance, the word function probably expresses the most important idea in the whole history of mathematics. For more on George Boole, and the development of logic and its role in the invention of the modern computer, consult that book.

Parker - BookboonThis volume teaches Maths from a 'chemical' perspective and is the first of a three part series of texts taken during a first-year university course. The book presents linguistics as a cumulative body of knowledge from the ground up: no prior knowledge of linguistics is assumed. These stories challenge many myths, including the notions that mathematics is a solitary pursuit and a "young man's game," the belief that mathematicians are emotionally different from other people, and even the idea that to be a great mathematician it helps to be a little bit crazy.

    For instance, the description of the invention of the term googol How social is mathematics? The book is particularly adapted to the needs of students in colleges of business administration. Math feels like work, while reading feels like pleasure. Even today, in the twenty-first century, when we are familiar with computers -- the "thinking machines" that are direct descendants of Boole's logical algebra -- it seems an audacious idea to write down algebraic equations that describe the way we think. Do you want to explain, for the layperson, what applied maths actually is?

Harrell II, James V. Although Boole's algebra had many of the properties of ordinary algebra, it was not exactly the same. It involves playing around with ideas, shapes, concepts, numbers, and structures; asking questions; collaborating with others; looking for patterns; breaking out of old paradigms; recognizing beauty; connecting with a transcendent realm of immortal entities; and making convincing cases to defend your claims.

Techniques include extreme-cases reasoning, dimensional analysis, successive approximation, discretization, generalization, etc.
