Math Club Talk

Friday, October 7, 2016
2 - 3 p.m.
Room: S-115

James Clark, SXU Mathematics Teaching Assistant, gave a talk to on Set Theory: Ordinal and Cardinal Transfinite Numbers. A great turnout of math majors (with biology and chemistry majors, too) and faculty were present for this fascinating topic.

Mr. Clark earned his B.A. in Mathematics from University of St. Francis and is currently pursuing a M.S. in Mathematics from Governors State University where his is writing his thesis in the realm of Set Theory.  

About Our Department

The Mathematics Department at SXU strives to build a strong sense of community among faculty and undergraduate students in exploring the beauty and importance of mathematics.

Our faculty members are dedicated to excellence in teaching and scholarship. The broad range of faculty research interests in mathematics and mathematics education includes: abstract algebra, applied mathematics, solitary waves theory, developmental mathematics, differential geometry, discrete mathematics, history of mathematics, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, representation theory of finite dimensional algebras,  mathematical knowledge for teaching, and processes by which mathematics teachers incorporate technology into their teaching. 

Our mathematics majors qualify for careers in business, industry, government and teaching. Our graduates are employed as actuaries, statisticians and in other positions at firms such as Allstate, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Fidelity, Redbox, Spencer Stuart and with the U.S. federal government. Graduates are pursuing and have pursued advanced degrees at DePaul University, University of Illinois at Chicago, Ohio State, Loyola University Chicago, Western Illinois University, Midwestern University and others.
