Newberry College offers a major in Mathematics and minors in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics. The programs of study offered by the department seek to implement the College's objectives that its graduates be proficient in critical analysis, that they communicate effectively, and that they be adequately prepared for a profession/vocation.
In addition to being competent in the College-wide goals, successful majors should
be able to:
(1) demonstrate knowledge in multiple areas of Mathematics;
(2) apply quantitative reasoning, logic and mathematical skills to the solution of problems arising from diverse disciplines;
(3) write computer programs in a high level language;
(4) apply concepts to successfully teach in secondary schools;
(5) prepare for graduate school.
Each year (currently in the Spring semester) the department hosts the Michael W. Terrana Competitive Logic and Mathematics Exam. This exam, named in honor of Dr. Victor Terrana's late father, is a 45 minute, unconventional test of logical and mathematical reasoning skills. No calculators are allowed; only pen/pencil and brain. The winner receives $100. Second Place receives $50. Flyers with further information and sample problems are posted all over campus or may be obtained from Dr. Vic Terrana.
