- industrial engineering
- numerical analysis
- systems analysis
- decision analysis
- and teaching.

James Sharpe, a mathematics major, and Chris Lynd, an associate professor of mathematics, recently had their research **published in the latest edition** of The American Mathematical Monthly. Their paper is titled, “Sequences Generated by Powers of the kth-order Fibonacci Recurrence Relation.”

Drawing from **more than 400 colleges** and universities, the Mathematics Association of America national Problem Solving Competition features some of the best math students in the country. And Luke Vuksta, a mathematics major, was among them. Vuksta advanced to the finals and earned a sixth place medal.

Chase Sakitis’s **childhood passion has led to** — not one but three — post-graduation options. “I chose mathematics, because it was a subject I excelled at throughout my school career,” Sakitis said. “Solving math equations or proving theories were like solving puzzles to me.”
