Mathematics & Statistics at Kenyon

Kenyon’s mathematics program blends theoretical ideas and methods, the modeling of real-world situations, and the statistical analysis of data. Members of the mathematics faculty are at the forefront of such innovative programs as mathematical biology and work closely with students on research projects.

  • Shaping Scientists

    Kenyon ranks eighth in the country (and ahead of every Ivy) for the proportion of STEM grads to earn a doctorate in a STEM field.

  • 75students a year pursue College-funded research projects in the humanities, natural sciences and social sciences.

  • Kenyon 360: Science and Math

    Get an insider's view of the S'Quad, the bustling home of Kenyon's math and science departments.

  • $1Mgrant from the the Howard Hughes Medical Institute

    The grant is one of several that Kenyon scientists have earned to foster a more inclusive and diverse scientific community.

“In classes taught with students, we present our attempts at solutions to one another and then pick them apart to arrive at the truth, all while guided by our professor. It is an exciting and effective way to learn.”

Math Mondays

Join the department for fun activities, math talks and socializing from 3:10 to 4 p.m. every Monday during the semester.

The Language of Mathematics

Nobody falls in love with literature by learning to diagram sentences properly. People should teach algebra, the language. There are verbs, phrases, complete sentences and incomplete sentences. It happens to be a language in which we can do certain things really well.
