Math students put their knot theory skills to practical use!
The goal of mathematics is to quantitatively describe our world. Primary to achieving this goal is the creation of solutions to problems. Wooster’s faculty members encourage students to discover solutions to problems through creativity and careful reasoning.
Almost every discipline uses more quantitative tools than in the past. Research in the physical sciences is almost always based in mathematics. New branches of mathematics serve the biological and social sciences as well as the arts.
The Mathematics program lays the groundwork for the understanding and the practice of mathematics in graduate study, teaching, actuarial science, applications to the social and physical sciences, and computer science. There is stress on comprehension of principles, reasoning and the use of these in applied problems.
Free walk-in assistance is available in The Math Center for students in 100-level math courses.

The son of two mathematicians, Garrity initially declared English as his primary area of study, but after taking John Ramsay’s calculus class as a sophomore, he decided to major in both disciplines. “I had kind of gotten away from math in high school,” says Garrity, “but I rediscovered my interest with Professor Ramsay. I really liked the logical reasoning that calculus requires.”
