Mr. Johnson teaches a class of math students.

Mathematics

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.

One-on-One Attention

Faculty in ASU’s Mathematics Department build mentoring relationships with their students and often 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 either Math Teachers of Tomorrow (MT²), a club that helps prepare students for teaching careers, or the student chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), as well as a local chapter of the Pi Mu Epsilon national mathematics honor society.

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 14 straight years, ASU students have maintained a 100 percent pass rate on the Texas Examination of Educator Standards (TExES) teacher certification test for secondary mathematics. They also have a 100 percent pass rate on the TExES for middle school mathematics for the seven years it has been offered. Other students pursue careers in economics, engineering and technology, computer science and medicine.
