Its scope spans the total breadth of knowledge that is capable of being quantified. Majors can learn about differential equations, algebra, mathematical modeling, analysis, numerical computation, statistics, and linear optimization provide a sound mathematical foundation in the science and engineering fields. Whenever possible, the use of technology is emphasized to extend the knowledge required for the consideration of realistic and challenging problems found in today's world. The mathematical sciences major offers an honors option that requires two semesters of directed research under senior faculty advisement that replaces the one semester research requirement and culminates in a written thesis and presentation. Mathematics and the ability to use it are particularly important to army officers, who are leading soldiers in a complex and increasingly technical world. A successful career depends upon one’s ability to assimilate knowledge from many fields and to apply it to a wide variety of social and technical problems. Mathematics is the common vehicle of thought and expression that enables the leader to model and solve quantifiable problems whether at the platoon or at the department of the army level.
