Hallmarks of our program include flexibility, the integration of theory, application and computation, opportunities for collaborative and independent work, easy access to powerful computing resources, and small classes, personal attention, and friendly, supportive relationships among faculty, students and staff.

We feature working groups in discrete mathematics, analysis, applied mathematics, algebra/number theory, and applied statistics and biostatistics with active schedules of seminars, problem-sessions, discussions, and conference attendance and organization. Students are invited to share the benefits of joining in these activities. PhD. candidates (and typically M.S. candidates as well) gain significant teaching experience by serving as Graduate Teaching Fellows for one or more semesters. This includes full responsibility for preparing lessons, and instructing and grading a small class with the support of a faculty course-coordinator.

## Mathematics M.S.T.

The Mathematics Master of Science in Teaching (M.S.T.) degree is intended primarily for licensed K-12 teachers, and the Department has instituted courses specifically designed for elementary, middle school, and high school teachers. These courses are designated as MAED (Mathematics for Educators) courses. They emphasize mathematics and statistics content together with the application of content knowledge to the K-12 classroom.
