The mathematics program at St. Olaf is nationally recognized for innovative and effective teaching, for scholarship, and for service to the profession. We see mathematics as interesting, important, useful, and appropriate for students with a wide variety of interests. Welcome to our mathematical community.

Math Across the Cannon

On October 1, Prof. Rebecca Goldin of George Mason University and the nonprofit organization STATS will be delivering two lectures in Northfield. The first, at 3:30p.m. on Carleton College's campus is titled "An attempt to turn geometry into decorated graphs." The second lecture is titled "Should you believe it?" This will be held at 7:00 in Tomson 280 on the St. Olaf College campus. Full abstracts for the lectures and more information about Prof. Goldin is available here.
