The School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences has established an enviable reputation for our teaching and research standards largely due to the high calibre staff within our School. A fourth undergraduate program leads to the degree Bachelor’s of Science in Mathematics with Computer Science; it is intended for students seriously interested in theoretical computer science. An alternative view is that certain scientific fields (such as theoretical physics ) are mathematics with axioms that are intended to correspond to reality. Planet Math An online mathematics encyclopedia under construction, focusing on modern mathematics.

Step 3: Read formulas as a complete thought or statement-do not ONLY read the letters and symbols in a formula. Like musical notation , modern mathematical notation has a strict syntax and encodes information that would be difficult to write in any other way. Mathematics is a great skill and should be applied in business – in accounting and finance alike. In 1904 the French mathematician Henri Poincaré asked if the three dimensional sphere is characterized as the unique simply connected three manifold. This award recognizes and encourages the work of young researchers in mathematics.

Dank eines einmaligen Verfahrens, das sich vielseitig an den Schüler anpasst, stuft MathemaTIC den aktuellen mathematischen Leistungsstand der Schüler durch Diagnostische Tests ein. Modern notation makes mathematics much easier for the professional, but beginners often find it daunting. In addition to courses, supplementary mathematics resources are also available. Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons recently played G.H. Hardy in The Man Who Knew Infinity, a new film about Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. The field of mathematics uses patterns, reasoning and other concepts to solve problems.

In addition, honor alumnus Dr. Gary Bitter (1962 BS in Mathematics from KSU) gave a talk on the last 70 years of mathematics education; and Friends of Mathematics lecturer Dr. Paul Muhly (Professor of Mathematics at University of Iowa) shared his thoughts on training mathematicians.

On March 17, over 40 school-age students participated in the 2016 USA Math Kangaroo Competition, hosted on the campus of Kansas State University by the Department of Mathematics and the Math Circle Seminar at KSU. A student fully trained in Christian mathematics has their inward thoughts and attitudes consistent with God’s Word.
