You ABSOLUTELY can do math, and you probably already do!
Through classwork, conversations, projects with professors, summer programs like REUs and internships, or through doodling in a notebook during your morning commute.
No way! The most important thing you need is a love of mathematics. Everyone’s mathematical path looks different, and that informs the kind of mathematician they become. Our community is stronger (and our math is better!) because of its diversity in people, perspectives, and ideas.
Check out these sites to learn about some of the many people who do math, and the many forms that their math can take. Then come talk to any of our
faculty members about your future as a mathematician. We can’t wait to see you!
