Four students from the Mathematics and Statistics department recently attended the Science Atlantic Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science Conference in Nova Scotia.
Statistics deals with the collection, analysis and interpretation of data.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is trying to change that.
