Mathematics Overview

The Mathematics program will prepare you to serve in the marketplace in a wide range of fields including business, education, science, and engineering. In addition to developing strong logical, analytical, and computational skills, the program seeks to model Christian maturity and to guide students as they discover the glory of God in mathematics.

“Employment of mathematicians is expected to increase by 22 percent during the 2008–18 decade, which is much faster than average for all occupations. Advancements in technology usually lead to expanding applications of mathematics, and more workers with knowledge of mathematics will be required in the future…. Many mathematicians also are involved in financial analysis and in life sciences research.”
Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition, United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics

Teaching at the secondary school level is also a typical career path for mathematicians; school districts highly value educators with a single subject teaching credential in mathematics. The Math program at WJU can easily be coupled with a credential to allow you to teach Math in the public or private setting.

Why do you enjoy working at Jessup?
I have spent my professional career in Christian education establishments. I believe strongly in the opportunity to educate the minds and the hearts of my students. Being in the role of a teacher, there are always opportunities to invest in students lives, I want to invest in students lives for eternity. I love to teach mathematics and see my students succeed, but the biggest success of my career is watching students come to know Christ.
