Math drives the world. It is the rationale behind computer security, economics, consumerism and so much more. With a 100 per cent job placement rate, a degree in Mathematics from the University of Findlay allows you to drive change in any field you are passionate about.
An Algorithm for Finding Eulerian Walks
Can a postman complete his mail route while only travelling down each street in his route exactly once? If so, he is going down Eulerian walks. This project focuses on the development of a computer algorithm that can find Eulerian walks in graphs and being able to apply the concept in real-life settings.
Hunting for Good (Will) Math
The two main problems from Good Will Hunting are the focus of this presentation. Learn about the solutions and ideas behind the problems as well as a brief history of the movie.
Four-color Theorem and Applications
The four-color theorem states that given any separation of a plane into contiguous regions, no more than four colors are required to color the regions so that no two adjacent regions have the same color. This project explores the math behind the theorem and real-world applications to improve efficiency.

Mathematics Day 2020
Tuesday, March 17
'Mathemagician' Dr. Arthur Benjamin to speak on campus
This year's event will feature nationally renowned mathematician Dr. Arthur Benjamin, also popularly known as the “Mathemagician," who has given a number of popular TED talks. Benjamin will speak in the Alumni Memorial Union's Multipurpose Room at 10 a.m. and at 1 p.m. The event will be free and open to the public.
Benjamin's goal is to teach math in interesting ways. He's the type of speaker that can make numbers dance. “There are three reasons we learn math: calculation, application, and inspiration," Benjamin said. “Yes, inspiration!"
In his day job, he's a professor of math at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California. When he's not teaching, he's talking in front of a different audience, usually in a tuxedo performing high-speed mental calculations, memorizations, and a variety of astounding math stunts.​
