Lectureships, Trusts and Fellowships | Mathematics is a discipline which has been said to be the Queen of the Sciences, and is the foundation of most modern quantitative and qualitative studies. The permanence and universality of mathematics throughout the ages is a consequence of its very nature. Mathematics is cumulative, developing from the earliest use of numbers by prehistoric civilizations to the highly deductive nature of geometry as developed by the Greeks, from the practical applications of calculus developed in the seventeenth century to the modern use of number theory in computer cryptography. Mathematics has many faces, from practical uses of its statistical tools to theoretical studies of abstract relationships. Our goal is to introduce students to all facets of the discipline, and to give them an appreciation of the historical, theoretical and applied nature of the discipline, as well as a full understanding of the beauty of the subject. The Department offers a broad variety of courses and programs in Mathematics. Beginning courses may introduce students to the applications to which Calculus may be applied or the practical uses of statistics; more advanced courses deal with topics ranging from geometry to game theory. All courses in the Mathematics curriculum offer a blend of theory and practical applications. Many of the courses offered include a substantial computational component, and students are encouraged to use the mathematical software tools available. Courses are designed to address the needs of a wide variety of users, from the casual to the professional. Some students may enrol in a course to familiarize themselves with university level mathematics, while others will take a series of courses related directly to their chosen study area. Those choosing to pursue a minor or major in mathematics will be exposed to more advanced courses which blend Mathematical theory and practice. Mount Allison has been very successful in placing many of its students in graduate programs in Mathematics, while many others have found employment after graduation in one of many fields for which mathematical understanding is an asset. Teaching, actuarial work, law and medicine are all areas requiring the ability to think and reason logically and for which a mathematical background can prove beneficial.
Students wishing to take the introductory calculus course (Mathematics 1111) are required to write a
