Welcome to the
The Department offers a wide variety of mathematics and statistics courses, ranging from the developmental and remedial level to the first two years of college or university. The courses support the development of basic skills mathematics, as well as support a variety of certificate programs and associate's degrees. The courses also prepare students to transfer to a college or university to major in mathematics, engineering, the physical or life sciences, business, liberal studies, and a host of other majors.
What's Happening in the Mathematics and Statistics Department
Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month Activities: Activities will be held in the Hard Math Cafe Annex (room 702) starting Monday, April 8 until Friday, April 26 (here is the flyer). Each day has a new activity that students can win a raffle ticket for completing. There are a lot of cool prizes (such as calculators, school supplies, fun math t-shirts, a math clock, and we're supposed to get Starbucks gift cards too). Each day of the week has a different theme. Here is what the schedule will look like:
- Mondays: Students complete worksheets (some will be time-based)
- Tuesdays: Students draw up a lesson of a topic they are learning in class that week (or another topic that I have chosen)
- Wednesdays: Students complete 2 questions to earn one raffle for each
- Thursdays: Students compete in speed arithmetic challenges (each week will get increasingly more difficult)
- Fridays: Students can participate in a Probability Dice game
