The study of mathematics is more than four thousand years old and comprises an enormous body of knowledge. Mathematics remains a very active area of research continually giving rise to new theories and questions. The knowledge accumulated and the questions being considered concern both mathematics itself and its many applications.

Mathematics is a fundamental skill required at some minimal level of all educated people, and required in depth in many professions. The teaching objective of our Department includes the development of reasoning and computations skills, and the preparation of students for careers requiring a significant mathematical background.
