The Department of Mathematical Sciences at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) is dedicated to education, scholarship and service in the mathematical sciences. We offer programs of study leading to bachelors and masters degrees in mathematics and to the doctor of philosophy degree in applied mathematics.

 

“Mathematics... is indispensable as an intellectual technique. In many subjects, to think at all is to think like a mathematician.”

Math Fact

Weirdly, random data isn't actually all that random. In a given list of numbers representing anything fromstock pricesto city populations to the heights of buildings to the lengths of rivers, about 30 percent of the numbers will begin with the digit 1. Less of them will begin with 2, even less with 3, and so on, until only one number in twenty will begin with a 9. The bigger the data set, and the more orders of magnitude it spans, the more strongly this pattern emerges.

 

 

 

UAH Math Club News

The Math Club raised enough money last year to support a child this year for the Secret Meals For Hungry Children Program sponsored by the Alabama Credit Union. The Math Club is looking forward to an exciting 2014-2015 academic year and again will be diligent with their fund raising efforts for group this year.

The Secret Meals feeds well over 1,100 disadvantaged schoolchildren. 100% of each donation goes entirely to the purchase of Secret Meals food packs, so every dollar of support makes a difference. A donation of $140 would feed one child weekly for an entire school year.
