Description"The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a wide variety of courses, a student-run math club (After Math), a colloquium series and opportunities for undergraduate research in order to provide an enriching academic environment.
The mission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is to provide a program through which students learn to interpret, solve and explain mathematical problems. The department also offers general education and service courses to the University that provide students with mathematical knowledge to assist them in their lifelong learning experiences.
Classes in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics offer a mix of traditional teaching and dynamic groupwork in problem solving. Assignments can include complex problems such as "Escape from the Klingons," "Describing Aircraft Landings" and "Helping Harry Houdini Escape." Typically, these assignments require the group to write a paper containing their solution and present it to the class. Appropriate use of technology, including dynamic presentation software, is encouraged."
