Students will learn how to reason logically, apply mathematics and statistics to problems with real-world applications, and communicate ideas within their field. They will focus on furthering their knowledge of mathematical theories, processes, and equations in addition to learning the basics of statistics.

The emphasis in mathematics is designed to give students the mathematical foundation they need to better prepare for a quantitative-based career or to prepare them for graduate school. They will further their knowledge by exploring different number theories, stochastic processes, actuarial science, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, and abstract algebra.
"BYU-Idaho showed me a better way of learning. There was much more interaction among teachers and students and thus you created a bond with your classmates and learned how to help each other learn by using each of your strengths. I work very well with others no matter what their background or discipline in my work, and I think that is not only a product of my personality but how we learned and moved forward at BYU-Idaho."
