What will I learn?

Mathematics is more than the study of counting and measurement – it is also the study of shapes and motion. Mathematicians look for patterns and use them to design new theories, new models, and even predictions about nature. This program introduces you to Mathematics and includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado.
