About the Department

Research Focused

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Idaho has an active research faculty, including participation in interdisciplinary collaborations. Faculty members in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Idaho conduct research in the following areas: algebra and number theory, analysis and differential equations, bioinformatics and mathematical biology, combinatorics and discrete mathematics, mathematics education, and probability and stochastic processes.

Polya Math Learning Center

We are also assuming a leadership role in undergraduate education with the Polya Math Learning Center. The center opened in fall 2001 serving students in two courses. Today the Polya Center serves over 2,100 students per year in three courses. The center serves as a model of how to customize mathematics instruction so that students from a variety of backgrounds can be successful in their mathematics education.

Indebted to Our Friends

As you can see, a lot of exciting things are happening here at the University of Idaho. While the grant activities have helped the department to accomplish many of its goals, we remain indebted to our friends who have generously contributed to our development fund. With these gifts we have been able to do many important things to support student success.
