UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
At River Falls, our mathematics instruction is dedicated to nurturing and developing students' creative mathematical talents as problem-solvers. The River Falls mathematics faculty has diverse backgrounds and research interests, including combinatorics, differential equations, number theory, functional analysis, mathematics education, numerical analysis, probability, and statistics.
The Mathematics Department is arranged so that many faculty have study spaces directly outside their offices providing an environment of easy accessibility to professors. The department supports a Math Study Room where students work and informally interact with one another, and a Math Help Center which is staffed with upper level students who can provide help and insights to students studying mathematics in their first two years.
Team members Jake Minor, Emma Cobian and Austin Wilcox, pictured above share their research results as part of the events at the First Annual Integration Bee. They wrote a paper to address Problem B: Merge After Toll, in which they compared a horizontal barrier and a staggered barrier for merging traffic after toll booths. This designation puts them in the top 8% of the 8843 teams that competed this year.
Team members Joe Opseth, John Incha and Spencer Morrison, pictured above share their research results as part of the events at the the First Annual Integration Bee. In their paper "Road Following Robots in the 21st Century," they addressed Problem C: Cooperate and Navigate, about improving traffic congestion through the introduction of self-driving, cooperative automobiles. This designation puts them in the top 48% of the 8843 competing teams.
All students who have not taken college-level courses in math are required to take the Wisconsin Regional Placement Test before registering for a math class.
