The Department of Mathematics hopes absolutely everyone had a wonderful break, and enjoyed time with friends and family. For the upcoming spring term, keep your eyes open for a few fun events and opportunities. To start, the call for CURCA summer scholar positions will open soon. So, if you're interested in working along with faculty for up to 8 (paid) weeks during the summer to do research, be sure to express your interest! Other events include the Pi Mu Epsilon celebration, several student mathematics conferences (the HRUMC and Spring MAA Seaway meetings), and the likely return of the highly televised “Pi-your-professor” event, among others.
Finally, a special shout out is in order for Veda Chandwani, a CURCA summer '18 research student in the Math Department, whose modeling work was published in the journal BMC Public Health (a top public health journal). Way-to-go Veda!
What are the odds statistics will help you in your career?
Find out by minoring in the NEW statistics minor, which will start in Fall 2020.
The new minor provides students with tools commonly used in statistical analysis and the interpretation of data. Therefore, the new minor is a perfect complement to quantitative majors, such as Data Science, Actuarial Science, Biology, and Math, among many many others.
A special thanks goes out to Dr. Tosun for developing the program.
