Minor in Mathematics at King's
Delve into the beautiful intricacies of mathematics. Spend some time pondering the rich algebraic and geometric patterns that have fascinated humanity for millennia.
Students in King's mathematics minor explore the abstraction of pure mathematics with its rich interconnected structures. We dig deep into the great questions of mathematics: what are all these sets, numbers and functions; where did they come from; and how and why do they fit together in so many ways?
Students in the mathematics minor also investigate how mathematics relates to many academic disciplines through mathematical models. Consider population models in mathematical biology, asset and resource development models in business and finance, information processing in computing science, or sound production in music.
