Mathematics forms an important foundation for almost any career in the natural sciences, the social sciences, computer science, business and a host of other fields. Furthermore, numeracy and analytical skills are crucial for the everyday functioning of any individual in our society and for the functioning of society as a whole.
The Mathematics Department at Douglas College endeavours to help prepare students for their chosen career paths as well as to produce members of society who are mathematically competent and have an appreciation for the importance and beauty of mathematics.
The Mathematics Department offers a variety of mathematics courses for students with different backgrounds and goals. These include a basic algebra skills review course, precalculus and calculus streams for both science and non-science students, introductory statistics, discrete mathematics for computing science, mathematics for prospective elementary school teachers and mathematics for liberal arts.
