Department of Mathematics at Winthrop

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics!

The mathematics faculty is committed to ongoing scholarly activity that includes searching for new mathematical results, placing modern mathematics in its cultural and educational context, producing pedagogical materials of high quality, working with area K-12 educators, and consulting with area businesses and organizations.

The mathematics faculty serves the Winthrop community by providing counsel on mathematical and statistical issues and serves the larger community through consulting and participation in discipline-specific professional organizations.

Most undergraduate students will take a course offered by the Department that meets the Quantitative Skills General Education requirement, such as:

MATH 101: Algebra and Trigonometry for Calculus
MATH 111: Everyday Mathematics
MATH 112: Joy of Mathematics
MATH 141: Finite Probability and Statistics
MATH 150: Introductory Discrete Mathematics
MATH 151: Applied College Algebra
MATH 201: Calculus 1

An online Mathematics Placement Exam is available to all students (incoming, transfer, and current) to determine which course is best for each student. For information about the Mathematics Placement Exam, visit the Math Placement Exam webpage.

The Department of Mathematics operates the Mathematics Tutorial Center, or MTC, located in 271 Bancroft Hall where students enrolled in mathematics courses may obtain individual assistance. In addition, some courses will use tutoring software which is available for students in BANC 173 and SIMS 114. The MTC is staffed by faculty and upper division mathematics majors and minors, requires no appointment, and is free to Winthrop students!!!
