Through academic excellence, we provide the theoretical foundation for critical thinking in quantitative problem solving and reasoning. We help students to develop their ability to effectively communicate mathematics, and prepare them for success in a career in actuarial mathematics, applied mathematics, applied statistics, or other profession.

I have been teaching at Bryant for the past 47 years. During that time, I have taught courses in Mathematics and have written nine textbooks which were published by Merrill Publishing and West Educational Publishing (Now Cengage Publishing). These textbooks were published for courses in APPLIED MATHEMATICS, APPLIED CALCULUS, and FINITE MATHEMATICS, all of which I taught at Bryant.
