Applied Mathematics News

Dr. Benjamin Wilson, a new Assistant Professor of Mathematics, earned his PhD in Mathematics from North Carolina University at Chapel Hill, and is excited to be a faculty member at SU.  "I am looking forward to getting to know all of my students, especially, the incoming Applied Math majors in the New Student Seminar, as well as the seniors in the Capstone course."  We are very excited to welcome Dr. Benjamin Wilson to SU and know he will inspire many students!

Welcome back to all of our Applied Mathematics majors!  As this year begins, we look forward to fresh new minds coming in to leave their mark on the Math Department and the University, as a whole.  This Freshman Math Seminar class looks eager and ready to learn! Their professor, Dr. Wilson, is also new to Stevenson, so this course provides a great chance for the math freshmen to work together with their professor to learn what it means to be a Stevenson Mustang. Best of luck to all the Math majors as we get this new school year started!

The Department of Mathematics and Physics  is very excited to start the 2015-2016 year! 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.

More details will follow on this blog about our students, the internships that our students are engaged in, activities organized by our clubs, exciting classes and laboratory experiments, and the new faculty who have joined us this year.

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



Just how well do you know your famous irrational numbers?  Joseph Rosenfeld, a sophomore high school student knows the Golden Ratio, φ, pretty well.  So well, in fact that he found an error in a museum display that has been around twice as long as he's been alive!  See the full article.

Happy Pi Day!  This isn't just any Pi Day- it's the Pi Day of the Century!  We're happy to celebrate March 14th (3.14) in the year '15 at 9:26 and 53 seconds.  That gives all math lovers the first 10 digits of pi: 3.141592653!  We won't have these same ten numbers until March 14th, 2115!

Just so you know, celebrating Pi Day began in the 1980's.  It also happens to be, coincidentally, on Albert Einstein’s birthday.  Enjoy the day!
