“Calculus shouldn’t be an academic obstacle. Our goal for the first semester is that all students will get through the course feeling proud of their achievement.”

Dr. Alexei Miasnikov, Department Director

 At Stevens, mathematics is more than numbers and algorithms and involves critical analysis, abstract reasoning and creating order out of chaos.

Students in the mathematical sciences take classes in mechanics, chemistry, physics and biology to prepare for professional endeavors in various disciplines, as well as further study with a graduate degree.


Program Highlight

The New Calculus

It is well understood that today’s university students learn in vastly different ways than their predecessors of even 20 years ago. And yet one could argue that little has changed over the last century in the way we teach Calculus.  At Stevens, we believe that more effective learning of Calculus and integration of this learning with engineering and science, leads directly to significant improvement in early-years retention and ultimately in better understanding of engineering principles.
