“The most important thing I learned from my mathematics professors at BVU and the courses they taught was the ability to think critically. Certainly, it is the case that the mathematical knowledge I gained from my professors has been an integral part of success in my career, but being able to consider problems from new perspectives and critically analyze information in order to engineer solutions and produce viable outcomes has been by far the most important part. The math professors at BVU don’t just teach math, they provide you with the means to perceive and make sense of the world in extraordinary ways.”
