The Mathematics Department offers a broad, in-depth curriculum for exploring all aspects of mathematics – including quantities, changes, abstraction, structure and space – through small, engaging classroom settings. Within the department there is a great sense of discovery and collaboration as students and faculty are active in research, journal publication, conference presentations, mathematics competitions and many have received distinguished awards and recognition.

Research

is an integral part of the program and is incorporated into coursework as well as ongoing, unique research solutions outside of the classroom. In addition to collaborative research projects with faculty, students are highly active in the Math Club where they have the opportunity to discuss mathematics, solve problems and participate in social activities. A dedicated tutoring facility, great professor accessibility and the encouragement of open discussions in the classroom all contribute to a nurturing and supportive learning environment that lends a deep exploration of mathematics. Graduates are poised to excel in graduate programs and have become highly successful alumni who are skilled educators, actuaries, engineers, financial mathematicians and more.

Wednesday, April 22 | 3-3:50 p.m. | Bridges 268 Featuring MSUM student Josiah Reiswig The Mathematics Undergraduate Seminar Series presents a seminar by Josiah Reiswig on “k-Dependence on Hexagonal Boards.” Combinatorial chessboard problems are a commonly studied topic in recreational mathematics. Rather than a standard chessboard, we examine one such problem using a rhomboidal board […]

Ashley Borchardt and Josiah Reiswig brought their advisor Adam Goyt, Mathematics, to the Pi Mu Epsilon Conference in St. Joseph, MN on April 11. Ashley’s presentation, “Opening Doors with de Bruijn Sequence” was a discussion of the matrix-tree theorem and its application to enumerating de Bruijn sequences. Josiah’s presentation “k-Dependence on Hexagonal Boards” was a […]

Wednesday, Apr. 15 | 3-3:50 p.m. | Bridges 268 Featuring MSUM students Pratik Dahal and Monica Maus The Mathematics Undergraduate Seminar Series presents two student presentations by Pratik Dahal and Monica Maus Pratik Dahal: The Generalized Dido Problem The generalized Dido problem is considered. The problem deals with the classical isoperimetric inequality which is explained […]
