What students are saying about Mathematics


When I first came to Carleton I was taking Physics, and was afraid of the math involved. That changed after taking a second-year Linear Algebra course over the summer. After taking that course, which I enjoyed a lot, I changed my program to double Honours Mathematics and Physics because I wanted the opportunity to learn the theory behind the math I was using. I started here at Carleton with no set future plans regarding a career; I just enjoyed Physics and wanted to continue with it. In order to keep myself motivated and define my goals, I have attended sessions with Career Services as well as presentations within the Mathematics and Physics societies. I will soon be working in the research field as an assistant, in order to gain experience and decide if I would like to continue with research after my undergraduate degree.
