Math Department

The math department at Hennepin Technical College provides coursework that students can apply in their daily lives, program areas, and careers. In addition to learning specific math skills, students learn concentration, analysis of information, determining the effectiveness of a plan, troubleshooting, attention to detail, and persistence which are all vital skills to technical careers. Graduates with solid math skills get hired and promoted in technical fields because employers are seeking applicants who can analyze effectively, problem solve, and think abstractly.
