Mathematics Education classes are taught in our two model classroom teaching laboratories where students learn best practices for teaching mathematics with modern manipulative, software, calculators, and classroom equipment. One of these model classrooms is equipped with a connected 30-seat computer laboratory completely equipped with the current versions of most commonly used mathematical software.
All upper-level mathematics courses are taught in sections with about 20 students. All classrooms are equipped with computer workstations and allow multimedia presentation. All lower-level mathematics courses are taught in sections with about 35 students. All courses in the majors and minors offered by the department, including calculus, are only taught by regular faculty with terminal degrees. Extra help for introductory mathematics courses is available in the Department sponsored Math Room. The Department hires advanced mathematics students to provide drop-in tutoring. The Math Room is a great place for small study groups!
Students hired by the Center for Athletic Scheduling use Mixed Integer Linear Programming methods from operations research to solve the real-world problems of its clients. The CAS is a self-supporting, non-profit, student-run, organization whose mission is to provide athletic schedules, optimally meeting specified constraints, to intercollegiate athletic conferences across the country.
