Department of Mathematics & Statistics

Mathematics and statistics are necessary tools in a variety of vocations.

In addition to courses that support our undergraduate degrees in mathematics, mathematics teaching and statistics, we offer general and specialized courses that support students in areas such as business, computer science, education, engineering, and the physical, life and social sciences.

To compete in a technological and global society, our graduates need a strong foundation in analytical thinking, data analysis, problem solving and modeling. Our mathematics and statistics courses develop and hone these skills.

On March 31, 2016, SCSU held its Forty-Ninth Annual Math Contest with 1,778 student participants from grades 7-12 representing 43 schools from across Minnesota (see results).
We wish to thank all the students, their faculty advisors, and their school districts for making this event so successful.
