Mathematics

Adding it all up

Do you know where the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8…) is found in God’s creation? Demonstrating a working knowledge of math does more than wow your friends. Math teaches us about the character of God—His wisdom, infinity, order, and glory, and it helps us accomplish the work God has called us to do.

A minor in math can bolster your competitiveness and preparation for future jobs and graduate work. Maranatha’s math minor is designed to teach the logic and skill needed to do well in the classroom.
