In celebration of the infinitely long, never-ending number, the department of mathematics, computer science, and statistics kicked off #NationalPiDay with the return of π-athlon!
In Bewkes Hall, St. Lawrence has created its first technology enabled classroom that empowers professors and students to collaborate on research, real-time calculations, and analysis.
Patti Frazer Lock (Mathematics) and Robin H. Lock (Statistics) presented their work at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Boston in January.
On February 1st, 2023 the Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics (MCSS) department held its annual Majors Dinner. Due to Covid-19, it was the first time in four years that the event took place. Approximately 75 students and faculty gathered at Sergi’s Ristorante Italiano & Pizzeria in downtown Canton for an informal evening of sharing information and socializing. Faculty shared information about upcoming conferences, internship and job opportunities, and departmental events.
Using part of a $1.2 million grant, St. Lawrence will use sports analytics as an educational tool to develop a series of materials that will prepare the next generation of statisticians and data scientists.
Faculty members put their knowledge into action so students and others are able to benefit from it. Recently, faculty presented their creative work on stage, during conferences, and in published research articles.
Research led by Assistant Professor Kevin Angstadt ‘14 was recently published in the September/October 2022 special issue of IEEE Micro on Compiling for Accelerators.
Alexandra Hill '23 presented her research project entitled “The Interaction Between Mental Health and Positionality in Literature: A Data Science Analysis” at the NY6 Undergraduate Research Conference at Colgate University on November 5th.
Following a competitive review process, Haydee Matos ’25 and Zenani Mabuza ’24 connected with economics industry experts and explored potential career paths during the Expanding Diversity in Economics Summer Institute at the University of Chicago, an opportunity they credit to guidance from their St. Lawrence faculty mentors.
