Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Our Department Mission
The primary mission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is to provide high quality mathematics education to mathematics majors, to students in other majors enrolled in our mathematical content courses, to students in our general education courses, and to students in developmental mathematics courses.
As a service to the College and University, it also is part of our mission to provide leadership and expertise in questions of mathematics and statistics as necessary across the disciplines.
In broader terms with regards to the dissemination of mathematical knowledge, our audience includes not only university students and faculty, but also our colleagues in the regional K-14 mathematical community and their students.
Finally, as a community of teacher-scholars, the department has an obligation to contribute to the effort to expand the corpus of knowledge of mathematics and statistics.
Faculty and Facilities
The faculty have strong preparation in many fields of mathematics plus a commitment to excellence in teaching. Individual members are involved in a number of exciting and creative efforts: computer applications of math, applications of math in business and economics, statistical research in biology and medicine, research in various areas of pure mathematics, innovative approaches to teaching at the collegiate, secondary, and elementary levels. Students have the opportunity to participate in these challenging programs.
Many classes make use of graphing calculators and/or computers. The department maintains a well-equipped computer laboratory open to all mathematics students. In addition, the department has a tutorial laboratory where students can get help on course-related material.
