Mathematical Sciences

Main Content

The Mathematical Sciences are organized around principles of logical reasoning and computation.  The mathematical sciences include Mathematics, Statistics and
 Data Sciences.

Mathematics arose from basic practices of measurement and counting, but has come to incorporate abstract ideas and constructions of considerable power.  It is now a crucial tool in science and engineering, and with the advent of powerful methods of electronic computation, its importance is increasing.  Specific applications include population dynamics, pricing of financial instruments, data encryption, and the modeling of a wide variety of biological and physical processes.  Students interested in the mathematical sciences should have a strong interest in problem solving and a good background in high school level mathematics.
