University of Minnesota Math Club

Math Club meets most Thursdays of the semester at 12:20 pm in Vincent 570.

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.

Title: Starting a New Chapter: Pi Mu Epsilon
Speaker: Ryan Matzke

Abstract:  Pi Mu Epsilon is a national mathematical honor society dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. Founded in 1914 at Syracuse University, it now has chapters in over 300 institutions across the United States, an undergraduate research journal, cosponsors the annual MathFest Conference, and offers funding opportunities to undergraduates. We are beginning the petition process to create a chapter here at the U, with the goal of creating the chapter in the fall. After presenting the history, requirements, goals, and opportunities related to Pi Mu Epsilon, we will have an open discussion about the new chapter. 

If you have an interest in the formation of the new chapter (especially if you would like to help with the petition process), but cannot make the talk, feel free to email matzk053@umn.edu.
