Mathematics Department Grants 

The National Science Foundation has awarded the Elmhurst
College Mathematics Department four grants in recent years. These
highly competitive grants reflect the quality and interests of the Department.
The sponsored projects are in the broad areas of teacher enhancement (working
with ChicagoArea high school teachers on the use of technology in the
mathematics classroom), mathematical pedagogy (using technology to link
mathematics and physics), and mathematical research.
