Engineering Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics Degree Objective: Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics Mathematics and violin are the only two things could make me feel peaceful. I don’t want to say how much I love mathematics or how hard I have worked in order for the university to offer me the admission. It is a little hectic to exaggerate a discipline you aim to research. How about just say something about myself and my understanding of mathematics? Mathematics seems ambiguous to many people around me. Kids who are good at learning or practicing mathematical problems are usually regarded as smart, gifted or even genius. Unfortunately,…

My childhood memories regarding learning mathematics has been for the most part positive from 6th grade onwards. From 1st grade to 5th grade I was not conscientious so at times math tests produced anxiety but math was, at the same time, easier and simpler back then. I recall being the fastest person to state the multiplication tables in 4th grade. During 6th to 8th grade, although I was not necessarily the smartest, I landed at the top of the class in advance math since I was very hard working.…
with those statistics? That is why I choose the career statistician to research about. Most people think having a career in statistics would be mind-numbing because you have to use math. This in most cases, math can be unexciting or dull. The reason using math for statistics can be enjoyable is quite interesting. I believe that statistics can relate to everyone. When you are using math for something that applies to you or you believe in strongly it is not math anymore it is statistics. The…
There are three main branches of study under the umbrella of mathematics including, operational research, statistics and mathematics itself. Operational research (OR) is also known as management science and focuses on the analysis of decision-making processes - especially in large companies or the military. Well-known areas include the analysis of voting systems or game theory. Statistics is driven by real-world problems, mostly issues that can’t be broken down into simpler parts and…
In the article “Mathematics Through Problem Solving” by Margaret Taplin, problem solving is expressed as being very important to know because it allows for people to understand the deeper meaning of mathematical ideas rather than just knowing easy strategies to solving problems. A big focus is on teachers showing students how to correctly understand problems and how problem solving can be used not only in teaching skills but also in society. A big contributor to problem solving strategies is…
APA Annotated Bibliography: Mathematics Mathematicians. (2015, December 17). Bureau of Labor Statistics. Retrieved April 9, 2016, from http://www.bls.gov/ooh/math/mathematicians.htm#tab-1 The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the median pay, typical entry-level education, work experience, job outlook, and so on in its collection of information on mathematicians taken from the studies completed by the United States Department of Labor. Mathematicians conduct research in order to develop different…
Business Math was first put into practice by industry leaders, George Dantzig and Harold Kuhn, in the 1950’s. Business Mathematics is important in everyday life because not only does it help companies and organizations record and manage business related operations but it is also helpful for companies and organizations to make data driven decisions that ultimately relate to logistics, supply chains and warehousing. Business math differs from other types of math’s because it consists of more…
Practice in Mathematics and Natural Sciences With respect to two areas of knowledge, consider the claim “Without application in the world, the value of knowledge is greatly diminished." Knowledge is a treasure; without it, we would not be where we are. The only reason why the human race has lasted so long is because of the application of knowledge. What is knowledge? Knowledge is the accumulation of ideas and concepts in someone’s mind. Knowledge can be taught or can come from within. What is…
On the other hand, some courses optimization seems to be the strongest topic in applied mathematics, with additional interest in differential equations. Lecturers are not much motivated to improve the situation rather they maintain their traditional lecture approach. Problem-solving applications and research activities generally are only beginning to take hold, however, because university mathematics has traditionally focused on theoretical topics on the assumption that the only career for math…
