University of Minnesota Math Club

Date: Thursday, Feb. 11th
Vincent Hall 570
Title: Massively Multiplayer Mathematics
Speaker: Eric Stucky
Abstract: Last year saw the inaugural Collaborative Research Project (CRP), intended as an undergraduate research complement to the Putnam and MCM competitions. The CRP distinguishes itself in several ways, but none more striking than scale: last March, it joined together 100 undergraduates from 22 schools around the US to work together on a single research question. In addition to covering specifics about the CRP, I will sketch that question, the contributions we made toward an answer, and my perspective as a former participant.
Fall 2015/Spring 2016 seminar list
The Math Club meets most Thursdays of the semester at 12:20 pm in Vincent 570.
The Math Club is open to all undergraduate students in mathematics; students from other programs are also welcome.
The goal of the club is to provide a forum for students to meet and discuss issues of common interest, such as careers in mathematics, research, graduate school, academic concerns, internship opportunities, scholarships, special lectures and summer programs.
The Math Club is very grateful to Professor Willard and Mrs. Jane Miller for their generous donations to promote student activities.
