LSSU offers several options for a student interested in the study of mathematics, including a traditional mathematics major, along with a mathematics program that emphasizes actuarial and business applications, programs in mathematics for education at both the elementary and secondary levels, and a program emphasizing computational mathematics applications.
The Computer and Mathematical Sciences program provides a solid background in both mathematics and computer science. Many graduates from this program who work in the computer industry have stressed that the mathematics foundation gained from this degree gave them a distinct advantage in the work place.

Professor Explores Technology as Teaching Aid 

Kimberly Muller Ph.D., professor of mathematics and computer science, had her article "How Technology Can Promote the Learning of Proof," published in the February 2010 issue of "Mathematics Teacher" magazine, one of the most prestigious refereed journals of the mathematics field.
Published by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the journal is targeted to secondary school math teachers.
In her article, Muller describes how using the Geometer's Sketchpad can help students learn about geometric proof through exploration, discovery and conjecture.
Professor Muller's research has been published in the Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, as well, most recently in Vol. 137, No. 7. Her article, "Vector Measures and the Strong Operator Topology," was cowritten and researched with Paul Lewis Ph.D. of the University of North Texas and Andy Yingst Ph.D. of the University of North Carolina.
