The Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Case Western Reserve University is an active center for mathematical and statistical** **research. Faculty members conduct research in algebra, analysis, applied mathematics, asymptotic statistics, bayesian statistics, convexity, dynamical systems, geometry, imaging, inverse problems, life sciences applications, mathematical biology, modeling, numerical analysis, probability, scientific computing, spatial statistics, stochastic systems and other areas.

The department offers a variety of programs leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees in traditional and applied** **mathematics and statistics. Undergraduate degrees are Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in mathematics, Bachelor of Science in applied mathematics, and Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in statistics. Together with the Department of Physics, it offers a specialized joint Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Physics. Graduate degrees are Master of Science in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, or Statistics, and Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics. The Integrated BS/MS program allows a student to earn a Bachelor of Science in either Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, or Statistics and a Master’s degree from the department or another department in five years. The department, in cooperation with the college’s teacher licensure program and John Carroll University, offers a program for individuals interested in pre-college teaching.

## ASA DataFest 2019 @ CWRU

The department hosted the ASA DataFest 2019 @ CWRU on April 12-14. We would like to thank all those who helped make this event a great experience for everyone. Eleven teams persisted to the end and presented their findings on Sunday afternoon for a panel of judges. Congratulations to all presenting teams on impressive analysis and teamwork and engaging presentations.
