Equipped with sofas, desks, blackboards, a fridge and a microwave, this room is an ideal space for students to work collaboratively or take a break.

**Mathematical Fluids Lab**To model fluids more accurately, faculty and students use this lab to compare mathematical predictions, numerical simulations and experimental results.

**Computational Algebra Lab**To gain a deeper understanding of number theoretic and algebraic questions, faculty and students use this lab to generate numerical evidence for mathematical questions in number theory and abstract algebra.

**Putnam Exam**More than 400 colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada compete in the annual William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition. Bucknell often does well in this contest. In 2004 the Bucknell team placed 10th, higher than any other liberal arts institution in the nation. || Learn

**John Steiner Gold Exam**Bucknell students help to host this mathematical competition organized by the department in memory of a distinguished colleague. Students from public and private high schools as far as 100 miles away participate and compete for team and individual prizes. || Learn

**Mathematical Contest in Modeling**The MCM is a nation-wide contest in which teams of undergraduates use mathematical modeling to present their solutions to real world problems. Bucknell often enters multiple teams. In 2010, the team of Dan Cavallaro, Bryan Ward, and Ryan Ward were one of only nine teams in the world to earn the highest designation of "Outstanding Winners" of the MCM. || Learn

**Philips Prize Exam**Every spring, the department holds the Professor George Morris Philips Prize Exam for first-year students.

**Peer Tutoring Program**Drop-in calculus help sessions are held Sunday–Thursday evenings, usually 7–9 p.m. They are staffed by graduate students and upperclass undergraduate students

**Library and IT**The Bertrand Library subscribes to many major mathematical and statistical journals. Most other journals are easily accessible through interlibrary loan programs. || Mathematics: the library's Research by Subject page .

The University supports Windows, Macintosh and Unix environments. Computationally intensive projects can be deployed on the 128-core Linux Computing Cluster**.**

**Speakers and Events**Mathematicians from academia and industry share valuable information about careers, and students gain exposure to the culture of mathematics and mathematicians. || Find out What's Happening

**Math Education Tools**

The department owns a variety of mathematics manipulatives that assist in learning and teaching mathematics. These include items that can be used at the elementary and middle school levels (e.g., pattern blocks, base-10 blocks) as well as the high school and collegiate levels (e.g., Calculator Based Laboratory Units (CBL) with various probes).
