    Today, it is not only that our kings do not know mathematics, but our philosophers do not know mathematics.
    Julius Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967)

    In the seventeenth century Descartes dreamed of a world unified by mathematics and believed he had seen the future. Today mathematics permeates nearly every aspect of the world, appearing sometimes as a tool and other times as a theoretical science. Thus an appreciation of both the beauty and utility of mathematics is essential to a liberal education.

    The Department of Mathematics facilitates growth in both areas by working with other departments to encourage student's development of skills needed for study in those departments, and by fostering an appreciation of mathematics for its own sake.
