Based in Washington, DC, the MAA is a professional society for teachers and students of math, pure mathematicians and anyone who is interested in the mathematical sciences.
Research Experience for Undergraduates
An REU is a great way for you to gain experience doing original research in mathematics. REU programs take place over the summer at universities across the country. The American Mathematical Society offers a full, updated list of programs.
Here you’ll find manuals for some of the TI graphing calculators we use in our precalculus and calculus classes.
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
Download a brochure that contains information on nonacademic careers for applied math majors.
Mathematics Placement Exam
The Mathematics Placement Exam is designed to see how prepared you are for college level mathematics. Most students have to take this exam before enrolling in a math course. The goal is to determine your level, so you don’t sign up for a course that’s too easy or too hard.
Dr. Donald A. Kearns Memorial Award
This cash award of $500 is given annually to a junior math major who is a person of character and integrity, demonstrates leadership qualities and has a good sense of applied study. The award recognizes the contributions of Dr. Kearns, who founded the Department of Mathematics and mathematics major in 1959. In addition to serving as the first chair of the department, he enriched our community through his teaching for almost four decades. Dr. Kearns’s family established this award after his death in 2006. Applications are available in March of each year in the department office.
