Actuarial Science

ACTUARIAL SCIENCE

My goal is to have students leave my class knowing more not just about the subject at hand, but also about the beauty of mathematics and how much fun learning can be.

  • ABOUT: APPLIED MATH
  • MEET THE FACULTY: APPLIED MATH
 

We are on the forefront of teaching and learning with technology. In the Siena Heights Department of Mathematics, the faculty is dedicated to exposing our students to the leading edge of technology. Regular use of modern learning technology, from state-of-the-art hand-held calculators to Smart technology to Computer Algebra Systems, assists our students with the exploration and visualization of concepts in courses at all levels. Besides engaging our students with modern hardware and software, we are preparing our future teachers of mathematics to use these tools in their own classrooms.

A degree in Applied Mathematics/Actuarial Science adds up in a variety of ways. There are courses such as calculus, probability and statistics and linear algebra, with computer science, engineering science and actuarial science options.
