DEPARTMENT: The mathematics program at Otterbein is unique in that mathematics majors begin, in their first semester, a study of advanced calculus and abstract algebra, while simultaneously studying computational calculus. Students pursue a rigorous course of study, while also enjoying the quality instruction and individualized attention that is a hallmark of our university. The department offers undergraduate degrees in mathematics, mathematics with teaching licensure, and actuarial science. Additionally, we have a graduate program in educational mathematics, with advanced courses aimed at current and future secondary school teachers. The department is relatively large for the size of the university, because there is a university-wide mathematics requirement for graduation. For this reason, half of the teaching schedules serve this need.
