How many ways are there to arrange the word: MATHEMATICS, if the last letter can not be "H", and the first letter must be a vowel?

First of all there are 11 letters. Line them up by vowels and consonants.
A A E I (vowels)
C H M M S T T (consonants)
You know you must begin with a vowel and must not end with H.
See what you can come up with? (There is always the dictionary!)
