Ghosts of Maxcy Hall

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Physics at the University of New Haven for Fall Semester 2015.

Our goal is to assure that the Department is a driving force in the mathematical sciences, and that it is a resource to the University of New Haven in education. These goals define us, and help us stand out from so many other places to work or study, and these pages extend our reach to broadly engage our community in the mathematical sciences.

The Department of Mathematics and Physics provides a wide range of courses covering all aspects of math and physics education from the introductory to the advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate level. The Department offers several BA and BS options for degrees in mathematics and for a BA in Mathematics Education. The Department also offers minors in Mathematics and in Physics.

The Department is part of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and consists of 18 full time faculty, 9 professional associate faculty, and 19 adjunct faculty. In addition, the Department operates a dual quad Xeon server for faculty and students as a computational resource.

Current Topics and News

10/15: The Department will be hosting its First Annual Math Tournament for students in grades 4-6. We believe in getting students intersted in math early on. If you are a teacher a local school who has students who would benefit from the experience, please consider participating. Further information can also be found online at UNH Math Tournament.

8/15: The Department welcomes two new visiting assistant professors, Dr. Salam Turki and Dr. Peng Zhao who have joined us for 2015-2016. We've introduced a faculty and staff gallery (on the right toolbar) to give students an opportunity to become more familar with the Department and its people (come by the office for coffee or tea, or to a seminar).

Some important curriculum changes also are in place, and students and advisors should take note of this information, particular Math Education Majors who are graduating within the next two years.   More ...
