Math Placement Test
UNCW Math Readiness Program (MAT 105)
Welcome to the homepage for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. It is a great time to be interested in mathematics and statistics due to the many applications and job opportunities in these fields. Our department offers programsleading to undergraduate degrees in mathematics, statistics, and teacher licensure, as well as a graduate degree in mathematics and a graduate certificate in applied statistics. Students graduating from these programs have had universal success in finding jobs. These include employment as actuaries, teachers, SAS programmers, biostatisticians, analysts and much, much more! In addition to successfully placing students in jobs, our program is also successful in preparing students for future graduate studies in mathematics, mathematics education, statistics, and computer science.

Mission Statement of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is a diversified community of scholars dedicated to excellence in teaching, scholarship, research, and service in the disciplines of mathematics, statistics and mathematics education.
The department is dedicated to the education of our students in the fields of mathematics and statistics and to the certification of teachers in secondary education. To that end we support curricula that lead to undergraduate and graduate degrees in mathematics and certification for teaching mathematics in secondary schools. In addition the department offers courses in mathematics and statistics that serve the needs of other degree programs of the University. To provide for the general education of all students the department offers courses for students of varying backgrounds and levels of mastery of mathematics. In all of these activities the department strives for excellence in teaching.
The department is dedicated to scholarship and research in the mathematical sciences, and to active participation in the professional life of its disciplines through publications and professional meetings.
The department regularly sponsors special lectures and activities to enrich the academic life of the campus and the larger community. Department members share in the role of faculty governance through committee participation at all levels within the University.
The department will continue to serve as the primary regional resource for the mathematical sciences by providing a diverse, energetic and highly qualified faculty with the instructional and research skills necessary to fulfill our mission.
