Mathematics and Statistics Department

The newly created (joint with the Department of Computer Science) Master’s degree program in Data Science started in January 2022 and is already a rapidly expanding program with 16 accepted students and multiple new applications arriving every week.

In order to develop a supportive and welcoming community for mathematics educators at all levels in the metropolitan area, UCO is host to the Central Oklahoma Math Teachers’ Circle meetings. This diverse community of teachers and mathematicians meet four times during the academic year where they participate in collaborative problem-solving activities. By inspiring teachers to discover the joy of solving mathematics problems and by cultivating their confidence to engage in open-ended math problems, teachers become better equipped to incorporate more student-centered, discovery-based pedagogies into their classrooms.
