Alum Success

Chuck last attended Lake Superior State College in 1985 earning an Associate Degree in Natural Resources. After working in the land surveying industry for fourteen years he started his own cartography and GIS consulting business in 2004. In the fall of 2008 Chuck returned to LSSU to pursue a BS degree in the newly created Applied Geographic Information program. Chuck’s senior research project was a geospatial distribution analysis of applicants to LSSU. This study will help the university better understand its potential student market and lays the foundation for further research into how place influences the conversion of university applicants into students. Chuck plans to continue to grow his consulting business, No Boundaries Maps and Graphics, and resides in Sault Ste. Marie with his wife Bev and daughter Theresa.

Mathematics

Students in mathematics regularly participate in faculty-supervised competitions

Mathematics is the foundation of the sciences, and the technology largely responsible for our present standard of living. Mathematics is one of the most productive tools yet discovered for unraveling the mysteries of our universe. In some instances, it is the only language in which some ideas can be expressed.

Many Options
 
Degrees

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 MullerKimberly 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 co-written and researched with Paul Lewis Ph.D. of the University of North Texas and Andy Yingst Ph.D. of the University of North Carolina.
