Welcome to UNC School of Mathematical Sciences!
The School of Mathematical Sciences is made up of a dedicated group of students and faculty members. Our faculty members are mathematicians, mathematics education researchers, and computer scientists. Our students are undergraduates, in-service teachers pursuing a Master’s Degree in mathematics, and graduate students pursuing a Ph.D. in Educational Mathematics. Graduates from our programs are school teachers, district administrators, college instructors, university professors, and professionals in business, industry, and government.
Our department has a particular focus on the teaching and learning of mathematics and on the preparation of highly qualified mathematics teachers at all levels. Small classes and approachable professors create a supportive environment for student learning. Every year, the students who graduate from our programs include approximately 25 prospective secondary school teachers; 10 students with a liberal arts emphasis; and 10 students in the applied statistics emphasis area. We also have approximately 50 students enrolled in our Teaching Emphasis Master’s Degree program and approximately 20 students enrolled in our Ph.D. program in Educational Mathematics.
5 of 10Gathering for Gardner
On October 22, 2014, the School of Mathematical Sciences marked Martin Gardner's 100th birthday with the 5th annual Gathering for Gardner Celebration of Mind party. Over 150 members of the university community enjoyed an evening of math puzzles, games and magic.
7 of 10Math Education Research
Dr. Gulden Karakok received the Sponsored Research Fellowship through the Office of Sponsored Programs. This fellowship provides an excellent opportunity for increasing knowledge and skills in grantsmanship, reassigned time for grant development, and a summer stipend. Dr. Karakok is working to expand research on Transfer of Learning.
8 of 1023Rd Annual UNC Mathematics Contest
This year marks the 23rd year of the University of Northern Colorado Mathematics Contest. Each year, high school and middle school students from all over Colorado participate in this contest. The first round is held in the fall in schools throughout the state, and then the top scorers from the first round are invited to the final round held on the UNC campus in January or February.
9 of 10Math Camp
Las Chicas de Matemáticas, a camp for high school girls, is held during the summer on the UNC campus. A glimpse of past camps and an application form can be found here.Please contact Hortensia Soto-Johnson for more information.
