NAU’s STEM-based math department
Mathematics is the most central of the STEM disciplines, fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These fields are vital areas of study in the modern age, and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at NAU strengthens STEM education through advanced training and a variety of teaching innovations. Our department also prepares students for secondary mathematics teaching, provides further training and professional development opportunities for in-service teachers, and works with schools on a variety of outreach activities.
We support sister disciplines in the College of Engineering, Informatics, and Applied Science and the College of the Environment, Forestry, and Natural Sciences by providing advanced coursework in areas such as numerical analysis and partial differential equations (physics and engineering), classes in statistics (biology and forestry), and through our Statistical Consulting Lab.
