Mr. Johnson teaches a class of math students.


Mathematics is found everywhere in our world, from the fractal geometry of leaves to the stresses on a suspension bridge and the microchips used in cell phones. Every science field uses mathematics as a problem-solving tool.

Department of Mathematics Mission Statement

The mission of the Angelo State University Department of Mathematics is to promote the acquisition and dissemination of mathematical knowledge and skills.

One-on-One Attention

Faculty in ASU’s Mathematics Department build mentoring relationships with their students and maintain an open-door policy for students who need individual help outside of class. Most upper-division classes have fewer than 20 students, and lower-division classes average fewer than 40.

Students interested in undergraduate research pair up with professors to pursue projects and then present their work. Faculty also closely monitor the curriculum to ensure that it meets the needs of students. For example, they have created a senior-level seminar class to help students learn to write research papers and make research presentations.

A Strong Community

Our Mathematics Department has worked to create a community of mathematical scholars. Many students are active in the local chapter of the Pi Mu Epsilon national mathematics honor society or our local chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The department also hosts several other events throughout the academic year that helps foster the community atmosphere.

Career Prospects

Students learn mathematical principles, abstract thinking and problem-solving skills that are applicable across several fields, particularly the sciences, and help them quickly get up to speed with other industries. Our students learn to be independent thinkers.

For more than 15 years, ASU students have maintained a 100 percent pass rate on the Texas Examination of Educator Standards (TExES) teacher certification test for secondary mathematics. Other students pursue careers in economics, engineering and technology, computer science and medicine.

Other Opportunities

Students have many other ways to get involved with the mathematics faculty and other mathematics students. Through research, contests, student organizations, or employment, we aim to provide students with ample opportunities to expand their mathematical experience.
