Alum Success

"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while be located close to my family.  My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree.  I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics.  In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."

" Currently I am a Board Member on the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Development Authority, in which my marketing background has been beneficial.  Also, I work with the International 500 Snowmobile race as the Chairperson of the Non-Race Events Committee and I work in the pits doing timing for the race and other tasks.  I am studying snowmobile mechanics to eventually become a race official or snowmobile technician.  I compete on the Soo Co-op Credit Union bowling team and I’m continually involving myself in various community events."

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.
