New Math Class supplying crucial data to Ameren
SIU Math's Wesley Calvert is teaching a new course this semester, in which math majors apply their skills to a real industrial problem in predictive analytics. Ameren Illinois provided the problem, and students will deliver their solution to Ameren engineers at the end of the semester. This project, supported by the MAA's PIC Math program, is designed to improve the preparation of students for the wide range of business and industry careers math offers. Hear WSIU radio's on-air coverage, including interviews with Calvert and SIU Math major Madison Wilderman.

Mathematics provides the foundation for all of science.
From the precise calculations necessary to verify scientific theories to the elegant mathematical structures which model everything from DNA to subatomic particles, mathematics is essential to science.
As a student majoring in mathematics at SIU, you will be in close contact with outstanding mathematics professors who are both international leaders in their research areas and outstanding teachers committed to your learning. Career opportunities for our graduates such as analyzing risk for insurance companies (actuarial science) to teaching the next generation of mathematicians have never been better. We offer Bachelor’s degrees in Science, Liberal Arts, and Education and Human Services. For those students interested in graduate degrees, we offer both Master’s and Ph.D. degrees.
