### Introduction

The mathematics program at Saint Martin’s University is designed to provide mathematics majors with a strong foundation in traditional mathematical skills, provide support to other majors, such as engineering, in which solid math skills are a mandate and help liberal arts majors develop an appreciation for the crucial role mathematics plays in modern society.

### Why Saint Martin's University?

- Faculty members bring students to regional conferences, where students are given the opportunity to present their research in a professional setting.
- A strong math tutoring program provides reliable help to struggling students, as well as employment for student tutors.
- The small student/teacher ratio allows the faculty to provide one-on-one working relationships with students to further strengthen and expand their mathematical skills.
- Internship opportunities have been available with H&R Block, the Department of Revenue, Costco, and Target.
- Our graduates frequently find employment in secondary schools, insurance firms, and the financial or computing divisions of large companies.

The mathematics faculty members bring to the classroom a broad range of hands-on expertise in areas that include:

- Applied Mathematics
- Linear Algebra
- Probability and Statistics
- History of Mathematics
- Geometry
- Abstract Algebra
- Real and Complex Analysis

### Research and Internships

Internship opportunities vary! Previous internship opportunities have been available with H&R Block, the Department of Revenue, Costco, and Target.

The top 15 highest-earning college degrees share a core factor -- mathematics, according to a PayScale statistic cited by the Mathematics Association of America. Mathematics opens the door to a wide range of career opportunities.

### Mathematics Placement Exam

The mathematics placement exam will identify the course number(s) of the introductory math course(s) for which the student is best prepared. All students need to take the mathematics placement exam if they do not have acceptable AP scores and/or transfer credit for prerequisite courses before class registration at summer orientation.
