The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is the World Championship Mathematics Competition for High School students and is held annually in a different country. Student research opportunities begin at the undergraduate level with the opportunity to work with a faculty member as part of their capstone experience; and continue through to the MS and PhD levels, where extended research projects frequently lead to journal publication and international trips to study at workshops or to present results at conferences.
The first two years of mathematics provide a broad background in pure, applied and statistical mathematics, underpinning more advanced material later. Most students achieve a mix of application courses and courses that explore mathematics. He was required to pass an entrance exam which he failed – but he got exceptional marks in mathematics and physics.
The mathematical concept of ‘fractals’ is difficult to formally define, even for mathematicians! Mathematicians work in industry for manufacturers, insurance companies, finance companies (Wall Street hires mathematicians), banks, market research companies, and as public and private consultants.

Mathematics is also often offered as a joint-honors degree, paired with subjects including business management, computer science, economics, finance, history, music, philosophy, physics, sports science and statistics.
A dedicated tutoring facility, great professor accessibility and the encouragement of open discussions in the classroom all contribute to a nurturing and supportive learning environment that lends a deep exploration of mathematics. A: For me, mathematics is a beautiful subject requiring nothing but your ability to think creatively and use your intuition the right way.
