Students develop expertise in applied mathematics, and supplement math courses with courses in other fields. Biology, chemistry, computer science, and engineering are integrated with mathematic theory. Majors go on to attend graduate schools like MIT, Notre Dame, and Carnegie Mellon, and have successful careers in business, science, government, engineering and education. Carroll teams have placed as "Outstanding" (the top 1%) three times in the international Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling in the past nine years.
Teaching Mathematics Content and Methods for Middle Grades This course is intended to build deep conceptual understanding of mathematics as well as the understanding and implementation of teaching methods for 5th - 8th grade mathematics. Specific topics include the teaching and learning of algebraic reasoning, proportional relationships, and functions. There is a particular focus on current middle grades mathematics curriculum and children's mathematical thinking at the middle grades level (5th through 8th grade). This course is intended for either elementary education majors or secondary mathematics education majors.
