From the architecture of a skyscraper to the spiral of a seashell, everything around us follows mathematical laws.

In our BS program, you’ll connect math in a meaningful way to your own life. You’ll learn without the stress typical of the subject & see how each topic connects to your deepest self while growing as a mathematician and a person.

See how it all connects

You’ll go beyond simply memorizing formulas and learn to understand deep mathematical concepts, logically justify procedures, and connect each function, equation, and concept to everything else you’re learning.

In our classes, you’ll see how math connects to everyday situations and your own life while also using it to better understand areas such as computer science, biology, economics, art, and more.

Dive deeply into each subject

As a student at MUM, you’ll take only one full-time course per month. Instead of juggling multiple classes, exams, and homework assignments at once, you’ll have the time you need to dive deeply into each topic.

Our small student-faculty ratio means that you’ll have plenty to time to ask questions, connect with your professors, and receive the support you need for academic and personal success.

Learn math without the stress

All students at MUM practice the Transcendental Meditation technique, which has been proven to reduce stress, enhance overall well-being, and promote the clear thinking that’s crucial to solving complex mathematical equations.

After meditating regularly, our students often find that they feel happier and are better able to tackle their studies. You’ll be learning math without the excessive stress typical of the subject.

Recognitions and competitions

As a student, you’ll have the opportunity to present your research papers at the annual meeting of the Iowa Section of the Mathematical Association of America, where several of our students have received Outstanding Student Paper awards.

You’ll also participate in national and regional mathematics competitions, including the annual Putnam Competition.

Featured classes


Science and Technology of Consciousness


This course will introduce you to our unique system of Consciousness-Based education. You’ll learn Transcendental Meditation, discover what we mean when we talk about “consciousness,” and participate in a 3-4 day base camp focused on team building and leadership skills.


Calculus 1


You’ll gain a clear understanding of the language and concepts of calculus and how they can be practically applied to daily life and real-world situations. Topics you’ll study include limits, continuity, derivatives, applications of derivatives, integrals, and more.


Linear Algebra 1


You’ll learn about linearity, the simplest form of quantitative relationship, and learn how it can be applied to mathematics, biology, social sciences, and other key areas of study. Topics covered include systems of linear equations, vector equations, and matrices.


Senior Project


You’ll connect your mathematical research to the underlying tenets of Consciousness-Based education in a final paper. You’ll also prepare an oral presentation based on your paper to be submitted to our annual Knowledge Fair, giving you a chance refine your speaking skills.
