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.
07/25: It has come to our attention that Prof. Reza Sarhangi passed
away earlier this month.
Reza's monumental contribution was his singlehandedly establishing the highly
successful and internationally recognized Bridges Organization,
which connects people all over the world who study relations between Mathematics
and Arts: Music, Art, Architecture, Education, and Culture.
He was the president of the organization
and they will have their nineteenth conference in August 2016 in Finland.
There is a memorial online at

Prof. Sarhangi gave a seminar on the Art of Mathematics and Interlocking
Polygons on October 18, 2012, and a workshop on Geometric Constructions of
Mosaic Design On October 19, 2012 at the University of New Haven. He was appreciated, and he will be

All Girls Math Camp 2016.
The math camp for girls is a six-day summer camp whose curriculum includes seminars by University of New Haven faculty on special topics in mathematics and computer science and is hosted by Yevgeniya Rivers, Math Zone Director,
and Yasanthi Kottegoda to encourage more women to consider career options
in mathematics and computer science.

WLC Conference 4/1/16.
It's time to roll out the $\pi$-day celebration for Spring 2016. Because of Spring break, we'll be holding this a bit earlier than usual, i.e., on March 1,
or technically we are approximating $\pi$ to the value of $3.1$ instead of $3.14$ this year. Click on our link to learn more about planned activities.
We are offering Honors Calculus II during Spring 2016 following on from
Honors Calculus I which was offered successfully in Fall 2015. In addition,
this semester we are introducing the
The Student Math and Physics Lecture Series aimed at students starting out in the mathematical sciences. The topics covered are of interest and accessible to students
with a background in Calculus.
- Important Note to Math Education Majors
Because of the closure of the Education Department,
it is essential that all Math Education Majors who are completing their
program take any required Math/Education courses this year. Please contact
your academic advisor if you have any questions related to this, or about
your degree program.
- Updated BA and BS Programs
The Department is currently in the process of revising its BS and BS programs
with the anticipation that it will be in place for Fall 2016.
This redesign is intended to
improve the quality of mathematics education we provide
increase access to more hands-on, experiential or service learning
courses for students studying mathematics.
The design of the proposed BS was also strongly
influenced by the need to provide a level of professional education
and training that provides students who successfully graduate from the
program the ability to be competitive at the MS and even at the PhD level.
In particular, the goal is to assure that all BS graduates
are able to achieve a funded GTA position in any of a number of competitive
masters programs in mathematics nationwide.
For students earning a BA or BS in Mathematics degree who are thinking
of of careers that may not be directly in mathematics,
e.g., a PhD leading to a research
or teaching career, or an MS degree leading to teaching career
at a community college, the revised math program is designed to provide
a broad background in technical and analytical
skills that are valued in industry and commerce.
The program is built on three groups of courses, organized by
Essential Math Courses that represent the
core mathematics curriculum that is required to be taken by all
Math BA and BS majors.
Depth of Study Courses that represent follow-on,
or second level courses that the BA or BS student is required to take
so that students can develop greater depth in selected topics
Experiential Education courses that are math related
courses designed to provide additional exposure to experiential
opportunities in mathematics or mathematics related areas of study.
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.
