Spring 2012 Activities

Each Spring semester, the Math Club visits elementary schools and high schools to share some fun mathematics with students and let them know of possible careers starting with a degree in mathematics.  




Fall 2011 Activities

Members of the Math Club travel to the Joint Mathematics Meeting of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) each January.  The Mathematics Department and the Associated Students of CSU offer travel support, and the club raises additional funds.  In Fall 2011, Steve Benoit and Hilary Freeman led the club in a project to build a trebuchet.  The club will present a poster at the meetings on optimization problems involving trebuchets as part of calculus courses, and was awarded a travel grant from the MAA.
