Mathematical Sciences

Mathematics is one of the oldest and most fundamental sciences. Mathematics is the science of quantitative relationships using numbers and symbols. Mathematicians use mathematical theory, computational techniques, algorithms and the latest computer technology to solve economic, scientific, engineering, physics and business problems. Mathematics is usually referred to as pure (theoretical and abstract) or applied (practical problem solving).  Mathematics includes the following specialty areas:   algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, probability, and statistics.

Actuarial science deals with the analysis of financial consequences of risk.  Actuaries are highly trained professionals who are well versed in mathematical, statistical and economic techniques that enable them to evaluate financial risk of uncertain future events, especially those pertaining to health care, insurance and pension plans.
