Mathematicians and those with mathematical inclination are inherently problem solvers. Through course work and individual faculty-student work, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers the mechanism to develop and refine problem solving skills and creative thinking skills that are vitally important for the demands of the job market and society in general. The core courses in the BA program provide basic mathematical tools. Diversity in upper level course offerings, combined with one or more interdisciplinary concentrations, gives students considerable versatility on their career paths.
The Department of Mathematics maintains a “laboratory” in 120 Neville Hall where students enrolled in lower division mathematics courses can come to get supplementary help with their homework assignments. The laboratory is open during the academic year. Faculty, graduate assistants, the laboratory.
