Speak the universal language—Mathematics
Mathematics has been coined as the queen of sciences. Mathematics is the purest and most profound of intellectual disciplines. What other discipline has a golden braid of “truth” reaching from Pythagoras, Euclid, and Archimedes to Fermat, Newton, Euler, Gauss, and Riemann.
Mathematics, like music, is a universal language. It’s the language of the engineer, the biologist, the chemist and the physicist. Carl Sagan’s classic novel "Contact" asserts that if there is extraterrestrial intelligence, the means of contact would be mathematics.
Mathematics is a human creative endeavor of understanding. It is the study of patterns in shape, time, distance and space through careful reasoning and rigorous deductions. Modern applications include Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which enables physicians to see more clearly. Other new mathematic discoveries include a 128-bit encryption for secure commerce on the World Wide Web (WWW), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), algorithms for speech recognition and canning spam by thwarting unwanted e-mail.
Men and women trained in mathematics are employed in a wide variety of fields where data analysis and logical thought processes are critical. Undergraduate training in mathematics trains students to organize their thought processes and hone their critical thinking skills.
Trine's program offers small classes taught by full-time professors who are committed to their professions and committed to the development of each student's full potential in an environment that is friendly and non-threatening. Every student is assigned a faculty adviser who will assist in designing an individual program of study. The faculty maintains regular scheduled office hours, as well as regular scheduled "math help" sessions eight hours per week.
