Mathematics majors at Berkeley learn the internal workings of the language of mathematics, its central concepts and their interconnections. Students learn to use mathematical concepts to formulate, analyze, and solve real-world problems. Three options are available: Mathematics, Mathematics with a Teaching Concentration, and Applied Mathematics. The goals are similar for all three, to provide students with an understanding of the basic rules of logic, to develop problem-solving and modeling skills, and to formulate mathematical statements precisely.
