The Mathematics Department is happy to support math majors that present results of their research in research conferences. Funds are distributed on a competitive basis. No deadlines are associated with this program. Students who have posters or oral presentations accepted in research conferences are welcomed to contact the undergraduate chair with requests for support. Funded projects include:

October 2018: Siri Neerchal, AISC Conference, UNC Greensboro

December 2018: Uro Lyi, Winter Simulation Conference 2018, Gothenburg, Sweden

December 2018-January 2019: Tanay Wakhare, Laboratoire des Signaux et Systèmes, Paris-Sud Orsay, France

January 2019: April Nellis, Joint Mathematical Meeting, Baltimore

The STICs program (https://stics.umd.edu/) helps students lead their own courses under the guidance of a faculty advisor.

The Mathematics Department welcomes students from other majors to take math courses with our department. We believe having students from other majors will add to the academic vibrancy and diversity here.  Hence, if your interest and ability allow, and if taking a math course would not hinder your progress in your major, we strongly encourage you to take a course with us.

IMPORTANT: Please note that it is your responsibility to confirm with your major advisor whether a particular math course will be appropriate for your major and career objective.

Nonetheless, due to high demand, certain math courses are designated PermReq or majors-only.  Non-math majors who wish to take these courses will need to request a BPO stamp from the Math department.  Furthermore, non-math majors will be blocked from registering for these courses until the LAST DAY OF EARLY REGISTRATION (Dec 5th, 2018).  We apologize for any inconvenience this policy may cause, but we hope you understand its necessity.

Also, you will not be given permission if you do not meet the prerequisites for the course.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation. 

Follow this link to complete the Non-Major Permission request for Math courses form (BPO).

Please email with questions. 

  • Are you anxious about math?
  • Has it been more than two years since you have taken a math course?
  • Are you in a course for which you are not well prepared?
  • Did you take pre-requsite courses at another college?
  • Do you get the math grades you want?
  • Are you spending too much time studying math without positive results?

 If you answered yes, to any of these questions, assistance is available.

Math Learning Specialist, Tarik Buli, works with students to assist them in achieving their math related academic goals, by using tools to help them asses their math learning needs. This will occur through individual meetings, in which she will help students determine their path to successful math learning, as well as through workshops to assist students with their progression in mathematics. This will include assisting students in completing the Fundamental Studies requirement.

Schedule your appoinment with Tarik today.

Kelly16 1 Math learning specialist, Kelly Ivy, provides direct academic support in the form of workshops to assist students in math learning.  Workshops include topics such as math exam preparation, math anxiety, and math success as well as various other topics that offer students resources and support to perform better in math.  Please click the link below to learn about monthly workshop offerings.
