You will use math today. Everybody will.
Mathematics is a powerful subject. You’ll use it when you check the time—or the speed limit. Newton, Galileo, da Vinci, Fibonacci: They used it in a variety of disciplines, and we still feel the echo of their work today—because math is where everything starts. That’s where you come in. No matter what career path you choose, mathematics will give you a firm foundation on which to pursue your goals.
Undergraduate Degree Programs
Whether you want to work in aeronautics, electronics, finance, marketing, opinion analysis, insurance, accounting, automation, sales, teaching, or something else—mathematics is your first step. You have the aptitude, but you need the tools to build your strengths into a career. And that’s where we come in.
The Mathematics minor is designed to support those disciplines where mathematics in an essential tool. such as marketing, management, physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, accounting, and more. The minor courses in the program develop the concepts and computational techniques, which will be useful in careers which have mathematical content.
A Within Host Model of Dengue Virus Infection
Dr. Jeremy Thibodeaux and senior mathematics student Michael Hennessey have derived a system of differential equations that model certain blood cell and particle populations in the body when it is infected with Dengue virus. The model aims to capture the relevant physiological processes to provide researchers a tool to develop more effective antiviral drugs and treatments in the fight against Dengue Fever.
Faculty research to be published in Mexican Math Society journal
Dr. Michael Kelly is currently working on research in the area of topology known as Fixed Point Theory. A collaboration with Professor D. Goncalves of the University of Sao Paulo, Brasil has lead to a research article which will appear in the journal Bulletin of the Mexican Math. Society. This collaboration is ongoing and also involves a research project which is related to the graphic on the left.
