Welcome to the Math Department
We welcome any potential math majors to the department. If you haven't declared math yet but would like to get emails about our events, please email Liz Gutierrez with your full name and class year. If you are a potential math major and would like to be on our poster, please submit a high resolution photo to Kathy early in the fall semester.
Hello! We are your Spring 2021 Math Liaisons! We will be hosting virtual social and academic events this semester for the math community. Additionally, our role will be to liaise with math faculty if you have any questions or concerns about academic issues. We are committed to supporting and connecting with all math students and we will strive to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone. Feel free to reach out to any of us and talk about anything on your mind, math related or not!
Michael He '22
Hi everyone, I am Michael. I am a junior math major. I enjoyed taking math classes and switched from humanities in the sophomore year. I also mentor for introductory math courses, so I enjoy helping students avoid common traps/burnouts. My biggest advice to new students? Take math early and calmly, so you don't get too burnt out or discouraged by the natural workload.
Feel free to reach out, when you have any questions related to math classes, study strategies, general life concerns, LaTex, and all things in between. I enjoy music, cooking, walking, ice cream, reading books, and plenty more.
Danny Ta '22
Hey everyone! My name is Danny and I’m from Ontario, California. I am a junior math major on the general track. I decided to major in math because of my experience with the Pomona College Academy for Youth Success (PAYS), a college access program for underrepresented high school students. Through this program, I got to take classes taught by Pomona faculty, including math. I’m also a coordinator for the Draper Center working with the PAYS program so feel free to reach out if you want to learn more about our work there and how you can get involved. In my free time, I love to watch soccer and binge Netflix shows. I’m extremely excited to be a math liaison this semester and I hope to be a resource for everyone who may have questions about the department or life at Pomona in general!
Jiahui Yu '231
Hi everyone! My name is Jiahui Yu and I’m from Wuhan, China. I am a sophomore math major and I’m not yet sure of my track. It is the enjoyable experience I have at Pomona math department and the support our department gives to me (especially during the pandemic) that made me decide to pursue math as my career. Math and Pomona math department make my life during the pandemic much more supportable. I like to go hiking in my free time. I am extremely excited to be a math liaison this semester and I hope to make everyone’s experience at the math department even better.
