Why is Northwestern the best place to study math?
Daniel Crane, Department Chair
“I really like that what I’m learning can be applied to every-day situations instead of just solving problems without knowing what someone can use it for. The math courses at Northwestern enable students to think at an advanced abstract level.”
– Dana Smith ’12, applied mathematics major
"When I can get my students to the point where they’re willing to interact and even question what I’m doing and say, ‘I don’t think that’s right,’—that’s even better because they’re not afraid to interject their ideas and thoughts into a project. Those moments are really great.”
–Matthew Hyre, Ph.D., Engineering Professor Graduate of West Point and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
