Department of Mathematics & Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has a long history of preparing both traditional and nontraditional women students for successful careers and for graduate school.

We strive to provide an environment that empowers women in mathematics and computer science and helps them to realize their potential in those fields. Sensitive to varied learning styles as well as to the changing workplace, we use a range of teaching methods to address students' individual needs. These include cooperative learning groups, use of computer laboratory investigations, and independent learning, as well as traditional teacher-directed learning. An important focus in our curriculum is modeling and real-world applications.
