The Department welcomes Ms. Thairen Dade as our new Math Learning Specialist! Ms. Dade has been working as an adjunct faculty member in the department since 2013.  In her new position, Ms. Dade will share her passion to work with and assist students who may struggle with or otherwise fear math.  Enlightening them on the fun and exciting aspects of mathematics is one of her top goals. Ms. Dade specializes in discovering individualized study techniques and/or applications to support each student’s unique way of learning.

The Department of Mathematics and Physics is very excited to start the 2016-2017 year! We're excited to be in our new building with new rooms just for our department.  The start of a new academic year always brings wonderful energy and excitement to campus. It also gives us a fresh start with new programs, ideas, and plans.

WELCOME to our new freshmen and transfer students and WELCOME BACK to our returning students. We hope you’re as excited about the upcoming semester as we are!

Students and faculty who participated in S3RP, our summer research program, had an amazing summer!  They all learned a lot, advanced many research projects and really enjoyed themselves!  Here is our official 2016 S3RP Picture.

Dr. Benjamin Wilson was accepted as a Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) fellow this year. Project NExT is a professional development program for new or recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences. It addresses all aspects of an academic career: improving the teaching and learning of mathematics, engaging in research and scholarship, finding exciting and interesting service opportunities, and participating in professional activities. The program officially began at MathFest in Columbus, Ohio where Dr. Wilson participated in a week of professional development activities.

Each summer, students engage in research with faculty in our Summer Science Scholars Research Program (S3RP). At the end of the summer, students present their research results to students, faculty and staff from the School of the Sciences.  Math junior, Gerald Roman did a great job with his research and his presentation on the Mathematical Analysis of Natural and Constructed Languages.  He is shown here with his mentor, Dr. Benjamin Wilson.
