With Apologies for Stating the Obvious

We learned it a decade ago. (The rest of the world is just now figuring it out.) Teaching math works better without lectures. Here, you will learn math by doing math, and not just by hearing someone talk about it.

Try this on for size: at Berry you will experience a personalized, goal-oriented, inquiry-based exploration of calculus, linear algebra, combinatorics and knot theory. Sound good? We thought it might.

Hands On

When you teach, you learn. Work with local high school and middle school students in the Viking Math Tutoring Enterprise, or be a tutor through the Open Door Home program.

Mathematics FACULTY

Dr. Martin Cipollini
Associate Professor of Mathematics Education
Dr. Jill Cochran

Teacher, researcher and passionate advocate for her students, Dr. Cochran leads STEMTeach, a program that provides scholarships and post-graduate support to Berry students preparing to teach science, technology, engineering and mathematics in high-need school districts (an initiative made possible by a $1.2 million National Science Foundation grant.)

Math in Motion

Our makerspace, HackBerry Lab, is your hands-on playground for bringing computer-science thinking to life. Our campus also doubles as a “math trail,” where you can work with school-age visitors to build excitement about the possibilities of mathematics.

Mathematics and Computer Science Courses

MAT 305 I
Proof Structures and Techniques

Become familiar with various types of mathematical proofs and the techniques used to develop them—including elementary symbolic logic, predicates, quantifiers, mathematical induction, direct proofs and constructive proofs.

MAT 319
Combinatorial Mathematics

Explore a range of topics, including generating functions, combinatorial designs, graph theory, tree traversals, networks, computation theory, coding theory and Polya counting.

MAT 461

Topology is the study of properties of a geometric object that are preserved by continuous deformations in space. Explore open and closed sets, continuity, compactness and connectedness.

Internship with L.L. Bean sparks love for software development

Mathematics major Hannah Marr ’18 spent her junior summer in Maine as a software development intern for the legendary outdoor retailer L.L. Bean. At Berry, Hannah shared her love and knowledge of mathematics and computer science with local schoolchildren by serving as general manager to Berry’s Viking Math tutoring. Now a proud Berry alumna, Hannah is continuing where she left off, having landed a position as a Programmer Analyst at L.L. Bean.
