Loomis placed second overall in the 30th Annual Worcester Polytechnic Institute Invitational math competition in October 2017.
The Math Department at Loomis values the practical reasons for studying mathematics, but also aims to share a deep appreciation of the abstract beauty of mathematics with every student. With many academic and extracurricular opportunities, such as our competitive Math Team, we encourage you to think carefully about the concepts that spring from our fundamental ideas concerning magnitude, quantity, shape, structure, and reasoning.
Our talented and qualified faculty offer accelerated course study in classes such as Calculus BC, Accelerated AP Statistics, AP Computer Science, Multivariable Calculus, and Linear Algebra. And if you exhaust our curriculum, we offer customized additional learning opportunities through an independent study program. We believe that it is very much in your long-term interest to study mathematics, keeping doors open to many fields that may prove of interest in the future.
The Math Department recognized student achievement in the study of mathematics for more than 85 students at its annual Math Honors event on Thursday, May 11.
Katie Gold Sharp '96 and Meghan Hickey '97 returned to the Island on Friday, April 21, to take part in an alumnae panel discussion about women working in STEM fields.
Mathematics is not only in the course work on campus. We offer opportunities to engage others in many areas of mathematics through visiting speakers, alumni lectures, peer tutoring in our Quantitative Resource Center, honors celebrations, and field trips.
