Mathematics is an essential discipline in today’s world. It is a powerful tool for understanding the world around us. The Mathematics Department at Notre Dame seeks to provide students with a basis in mathematics that will increase their problem solving skills and develop their abstract reasoning ability in order to prepare them for success in a rapidly changing society.
Our curriculum is designed so that students have met the UC and CSU requirements for three years of math by their junior year. We recommend students complete four years of math as the more competitive colleges prefer four years of math. We feel that by providing our students with a strong mathematical background, we have prepared our students for success in their future college and career choices.
