Fascinating Research that Speaks to the Power of Collaboration

At the University of Kentucky, our work is deeply rooted in a sense of community and in a spirit of partnership; we know that working together is the best way to address complex challenges.

An Aptitude for Math: A Conversation with A&S Alum Dan Waggoner

From student, to professor, and on to research economist and policy adviser - one thing has remained constant in Dan Waggoner’s life - his love of math and how it has influenced his perspective. In this podcast, Laura Sutton chats with Waggoner about his current role as a research economist and policy adviser at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and how his history in academia and position as a mathematician prepared him for this opportunity.

Renovated Mathskeller Open House Rescheduled for This Wednesday

Many agree that an environment can shape the learner, and in a field like mathematics, an environment that fosters active learning and engaged teaching with no appointment necessary may be the key to success for some students.

Prominent Female Mathematician to Deliver van Winter Memorial Lecture

Cyrus Hettle's paper "The Symbolic and Mathematical Influence of Diophantus's Arithmetica" published in the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Cyrus Hettle's paper The Symbolic and Mathematical Influence of Diophantus's Arithmetica was published in the January 2015 issue of the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics.  Cyrus received his undergraduate degrees from UK in 2014 with majors in Mathematics and Classics, and is currently a graduate student in the mathematics department.  His paper began as a project in MA 330, History of Mathematics, when he was an undergraduate.

Mathskeller Open House


With new renovations completed over the 2014-15 winter break, the UK Mathskeller unveiled its new look at an open house on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 - hosted by the Department of Mathematics and College of Arts and Sciences, in room 63 in the basement of the White Hall Classroom Building. 

Opened in 2001 with 20 computers and a large printing budget, the Mathskeller, a computing and mathematics learning center managed by the Department of Mathematics and the Mathematical Sciences Computing Facility, was established to implement a technology-assisted instructional model. Fourteen years later, the center is home to only four computers, printers aren't used nearly as much, and the facility looks nothing like a basement classroom.

Instead, the center resembles a modern, collective learning space. And while there may be fewer wires and less printing, technology still has a leading role at the center.

Today's students, at least UK students utilizing the revitalized Mathskeller, are also taking advantage of the multiple mobile workspaces, bright LED-lit atmosphere, comfortable seating, tutors and chalkboard-lined walls. The renovated Mathskeller still features a kitchenette and group study or meeting room, and has added more storage, new carpet, additional study tables by removing a closet, and even a new computerized sign-in method.
