"Years of thinking, dreaming and planning have resulted in a state of the art science facility for teaching and undergraduate research."
The Division of Mathematics and Computer Information Sciences now occupies most of the first floor in the new Ott Hall of Sciences and Nursing.
Faculty have moved into an office suite immediately adjacent to our new classrooms and laboratories. To encourage student/faculty interaction, the suite was designed with generous collaboration space directly outside the faculty offices.
All classrooms are equipped with interactive projectors. Two rooms are equipped with laptops with synchronization software for computer-aided instruction and collaboration.
The Networks Lab supports cross-platform class projects involving Macintosh computers, various tablet technologies, and robots, while also providing space for long term research projects. The Majors Lab was designed for student collaboration and study, as well as team-focused classes. Finally, the Modeling Lab allows for the capture and study of realistic data for projects in applied mathematics and statistics courses.
The CIS Department houses servers near the Networks Lab. They provide Linux, Unix and Microsoft operating system platforms, as well as host faculty websites.
