Several graduating students are leaving to pursue teaching certifications and masters degrees in education. Specifically, congragulations to:
Angela Mastropietro, '18, is attending a PhD program in mathematics at U. Conn. in the Fall 2018;
Robert Ruiz, '18, a biology major and math minor, is using his math experience to pursue a masters degree in applied statistics at Georgetown University;
Cassandra Pray, '17, is pursuing a masters degree in operations research at Indiana University of Pennsylvania after completing a research project in abstract algebra.
The Department is pleased to announce the winners of the annual awards for excellence in mathematics and physics. The Academic Excellence Award in Mathematics was granted to Mara Dubnicka and Daniel West. The Academic Excellence Award in Physics has been granted to Katlyn Hanson and Gabriel Unger.
The Department hosted the Northeastern Section Meeting of the Mathematics Association of America (MAA) on June 1-2. We welcome all to the University of New Haven.
After a well-attended math tournament in March 2018 during which□
Yevgeniy Rivers, Math Zone Director, connected with Maria DelVecchio,
Math Coach at Bailey Middle School in West Haven, offering to design
and deliver an after-school program for seventh and eighth grade students.
With much help from two graduating math major seniors, Angela Mastropietro and Tiffany Khan, as well as from colleague and All Girls Math Academy co-founder Dr. Yasanthi Kottegoda, the six-week program was a great success.□
Our curriculum is multi-faceted including: puzzling math warm-ups, biographies of a diverse pool of current STEM leaders, the mathematics of cryptography and cracking codes using Python. Our students come from diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds and are truly a representation of the West Haven community, which our University proudly calls home.
We welcome Dr. Ryan Tully-Doyle to the faculty in the Department of Math
The All Girls Math Academy of 2017 ran from June 26 to July 1 with a record
of 18 participants. It was led by Yevgeniya Rivers and Yasanthi Kottegoda
with the invaluable assistance from recent UNH Math grad Cassandra Pray and
4th year Math Major Angela Mastropietro. Most participants came from New
Haven and West Haven public schools. The math curriculum included graph
theory, inductive and deductive reasoning and cryptography. Activities
included a boisterous cryptography scavenger hunt, a visit to the Museum of
daily groupwork and individual presentations. The academy featured 4 guest
speakers in a variety of industries that depend on math, computer science or
both and culminated in a discussion of careers for mathematicians, project
presentations and a celebration with the girls' family members.
06/13 Please note that theere are new regulations
governing students who seek to place out our thier core math
classes. This topic is fulled discussed at
Please contact us if you have any additional questions.
04/22 We would like to offer our congratulations to
Yevgeniya Rivers for having
received a Faculty Service Award at the Univeristy ceremony on
on April 22. Thank you for the high standards in educational achievement.
02/16: Please take some time to familiarize yourselves with our new
Math BA and BS degrees (list on the right toolbar). We have significantly
improved options for new students and for students currently pursuing
a batchelors in math, so it is worthwhile examining all options even if you
are in already a math major.
01/16: Please take time to help disseminate information about the
All Girls Math Camp that is being offered
this summer at the University of New Haven.
11/19: We are pleased to announce that starting in Spring 2017
we will be accepting students to a much anticipated update of our
BA and BS in Mathematics Programs. These provide for greater flexibility
and a wider range of curriculum options. The programs follow the
tradition of our existing BA/BS programs, but expand opportunities
for undergraduate research and hands-on-learning. Check these out
under the Dept Catalog info
on the right navigation bar.
if you are interested in learning more about our programs.
Students already following a program of study leading to the BA or BS at UNH
will be allowed to opt into the new program when it becomes available.
