2019-2020 Catalog


Mathematics, the science of patterns, is also the language of science; as such, it is a major part of a liberal arts education. The quantitative and analytical skills students gain in mathematics courses apply to future work in the sciences and in many other fields, such as economics and the social sciences. These skills are necessary to participate critically in our society and the world. All MMC students are required to take one college-level mathematics course.
