The Math Club is established for the purpose of fostering a greater understanding of mathematics, encouraging undergraduate activity in math research and related mathematical experiences, and providing a social and intellectual forum to all students interested in experiencing math.
What is Math Club?
Math Club is an extracurricular organization at the University of Maryland - College Park. Our philosophy is that anyone with any level of interest in mathematics should have the opportunity to share their interest with like-minded peers. For this reason, Math Club membership is open to all students. There are no prerequisites to join the club.
What does Math Club do?
We have weekly meetings and organize math related events. At our meetings, members give talks on topics of their choice. In the past, speakers have talked about Rubik's cubes, imagining four dimensional space, integer partitions, mental calculations of roots, the sequence 1234321234321234321...., continued fraction expansions, and efficiently computing fibonacci numbers. This upcoming semester, we plan to host guest talks from professors and a Pi Day celebration.
When does Math Club meet?
Last semester we met on Tuesdays from 4:30pm - 5:30pm. Next semester we may change the time and day of week.
