About Us

The mission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is to provide a program through which students experience success in mathematics by learning to interpret, solve and explain mathematical problems.

The department also offers general education and service courses to the University that provide students with mathematical knowledge to assist them in their lifelong learning experiences.

Classes in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics offer a mix of traditional teaching, inquiry based teaching and dynamic group work in problem solving. Assignments may require a group to write a paper containing their solution and present their solution to the class. Appropriate use of technology, including dynamic presentation software, is encouraged.

Dedicated teachers, small class sizes (typically 25 or fewer), student-run organizations, creative student life leaders, widely accessible technology and a friendly, close-knit community are just some of the benefits of life at Northwest. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a wide variety of courses, a colloquium series and opportunities for undergraduate research in order to provide an enriching academic environment.

The department is housed in the Garrett-Strong Science Building. Faculty offices are on the first floor, classrooms are on the first and second floor. Department facilities include a Math Lab, view Math Lab Schedule room where upper division students and graduate students tutor students in lower division classes.
