In addition to teaching the necessary skills, our math department develops unique projects which ask students to apply their thinking to solve real-world problems.

Examples of projects include:

- How long would you need to own a hybrid car before you made you money back?
- How does logic in mathematical proofs be applied to the analysis of advertising and political campaigns?
- Can statistical measures accurately describe a "typical" IACS student?

Some IACS graduates will continue studying mathematics in college and will be well prepared to do so. All IACS graduates will leave with sound mathematical literacy that they will own the rest of their lives.
