What does the Mathematics Program at Misericordia University offer you?
The mathematics major begins with a foundational sequence of fundamental mathematics courses intended to provide the student with the background to pursue a career as an engineer, actuary, scientist, educator, or data analyst just to name a few. This sequence includes:
- A three-semester sequence in Calculus
- A course in Linear Algebra
- A course in Differential Equations
- A course in Probability and Statistics
- A course in Set Theory and Logic - introducing the students to higher level mathematical thought processes
Additionally, each student must take an advanced course in Abstract Algebra and an advanced course in Real Analysis, to provide some depth of mathematical topics.

Dr. Steven Tedford, Professor of Mathematics and Department Chair, wins the Bruckman Prize
The Bruckman Prize is named in honor of Paul Bruckman who had a long and distinguished association with Fibonacci numbers. Two prizes are awarded each even-numbered year commencing with 2016 for papers which develop a new approach or expand results in the area of generalized Fibonacci numbers and related areas of mathematics. The program is funded by a grant from George A. Hisert of Berkeley, California.
Dr. Tania Hazra, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, has been named a Project NExT Fellow through the MAA (Mathematical Association of America)
Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) is a professional development program for new or recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences. It addresses all aspects of an academic career: improving the teaching and learning of mathematics, engaging in research and scholarship, finding exciting and interesting service opportunities, and participating in professional activities. It also provides the participants with a network of peers and mentors as they assume these responsibilities. Since 1994 there have been over 1700 Fellows, who have appeared in all capacities in the academic mathematical profession.
