Our majors enjoy working closely with their professors on classroom work, independent study, and now more frequently, our majors are involved in undergraduate research. The coursework is designed to provide a solid foundation upon which to build a career.
Lee County Mosquito Control Modeling
MAT 4930 Industrial Math research team partners with Lee County Mosquito Control District to model West Nile Virus activity in Southwest Florida. The team will present its model at the end of the Spring 2022 semester as part of the MAA's Industrial Careers in Mathematical Sciences Program and it is supported by the National Science Foundation (grant DMS-1722275) and the National Security Agency.
CUR Faculty Mentor Awards
The CUR Mathematics and Computer Sciences Division announces Dr. Erik Insko as one of the 2021 recipients of its Faculty Mentor Awards, which honor mentors for their success in mentoring undergraduate researchers.
2021 Spring Math Department Graduation Ceremony.
In 2021 Spring Mathematics department graduated one Masters students, 13 Bachelor of Science students, 2 Bachelor of Arts students, 16 Math Minor students, and 9 Statistics Minor students.
PIC Math Program
In Spring of 2022, Dr. A. Condori will lead a cohort of FGCU undergraduate students in a semester-long undergraduate research experience using mathematics to address a problem from business, industry, or government. Funding for this project is provided by NSF grant DMS-1722275 through the MAA Preparation for Industrial Careers in Mathematical Sciences Program (PIC Math) and the National Security Agency (NSA).
79th honoree in the FGCU Author Series
Dr. Condori is the 79th honoree in the FGCU Author Series. His book Recent Progress on Operator Theory and Approximation in Spaces of Analytic Functions is featured on the FGCU Library’s media channels and on the first floor of the FGCU Library during February 2021.
How the Facebook algorithm decides what you see
Facebook has come under criticism for its algorithm, facing accusations that it helps promote harmful content. But Algorithms are complicated, filled with letters, numbers and variables that control so much of what we see online. So how do they work?
WINK News spoke with Florida Gulf Coast University statistician Senthil Girimurugan and asked them to simplify it.”The more you give into Facebook, the more it’s going to learn about you.”
Joint Mathematics Meeting 2020. Denver Colorado.
Some of our students attended 2020 meeting and made research presentations. Student attendees are Viktoriya Bardenova, Collin Garofalo, Breanna O’Shea, Tom Shlomi, Sydney Edwards, Alyson Baumgardner, Caden Ryals Luneburg, Cody Hennessey, Blake Gilliland, Jean Vega, and Natasha Campanaro.
Student-faculty research appears in widely read journal
The paper "Polynomially Isometric Matrices in Low Dimensions" by faculty members C. Brooks and A. Condori, and student N. Seguin (B.S. Math 2018) was recently published in The American Mathematical Monthly (Volume 128, 2021 - Issue 6), the most widely read mathematics journal in the world. This research was funded in part by a Seidler Scholarly Collaboration Fellowship.

41st Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest
The Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest (VTRMC) is math competition sponsored each fall by the Mathematics Department at Virginia Tech. FGCU participants Mireya Cruz-Cruz, Viktoriya Bardenova, Tom Shlomi, and Lars J. Nilsen attended the 41st VTRMC..
Math Department Tutoring Center
The Math Department Tutoring Center is a place for all FGCU students to get assistance studying for their math classes. Center will provide the tools necessary to meet and exceed the demands of your lower level math courses. Its primary function is to provide students with the opportunity to receive one-on-one help from tutors ready and able to answer questions.
