The Mathematics Department at Kettering is focused on helping you fulfill your potential and building the skills needed to pursue your passions. Through rigorous mathematical instruction, we will help you develop a strong mathematical background and build the creative and critical thinking skills you will need throughout your career.
Many of the faculty of the Mathematics Department have been recognized with the Outstanding Teaching Award at Kettering. They have also worked with many students on award winning theses. In addition to excelling in the classroom, the faculty are active researchers looking at problems in probability, control theory, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, and control theory among others. They have the expertise to help students transition from their first college math course to looking at problems on the cutting edge of engineering, science and mathematics.
Mathematics Department Competitions
In collaboration with other students, you’ll have opportunities to apply the skills you’re learning in your mathematics courses to competitions. Past student teams have won the Student Competition Using Differential Equations Modeling (SCUDEM) event, a mathematical modeling competition that requires advanced knowledge of calculus and differential equations.
At Kettering, we understand that in the real-world problems are not separated by distinct academic disciplines. The Kettering Mathematics Department works closely with the College of Engineering and the Department of Computer Science to ensure students are developing the skills needed for these disciplines. We also realize that mathematics is everywhere and recently offered a course on Math for Social Justice in collaboration with the Department of Liberal Arts.
