CoSin WaveMathematics is the art of creative problem solving, the science of pattern and structure, and the quantitative language of the world. As such, it touches all academic disciplines. Persons graduating from Elmhurst College with a mathematics major have the problem solving skills and analytical tools needed to understand and work with patterns, to solve difficult problems independently and to rapidly assimilate new concepts.

Our alumni include accountants, actuaries, college and university professors, computer programmers, comptrollers, data processing managers, economists, engineers, government workers, independent business owners, independent consultants, industrial mathematicians, insurance company executives, investment managers, junior and senior high school teachers, ministers, physicists, sales managers, and system analysts.

Elmhurst College has an active mathematics and computer science club, a Student Chapter of the Mathematics Association of America, and is the Illinois Iota Chapter of of Pi Mu Epsilon, a National Mathematics Honorary Society.  The  Department also participates in ACCA, the Associated Colleges of the Chicago Area, and, during the Fall and Spring Terms,  sponsors a weekly seminar series.  These organizations and activities provide students with opportunities to interact with fellow students and faculty outside the classroom.
