Student Activities

Undergraduate Poster Session

Students are encouraged to present research and results of special projects in poster format. The session is scheduled for Saturday morning, concurrent with contributed talks.

Math Jeopardy Contest

Teams of three or four undergraduates will compete in a mathematical version of the well-known answer-and-question game. Competition is limited. There is a $25.00 registration fee for each team. This fee can be paid with the sponsor’s meeting registration. Topics will include calculus (single and multi-variable), linear algebra, differential equations, and discrete mathematics. The preliminary rounds for Math Jeopardy will be scheduled on Friday morning from 8:00-12:00. There is a limit of 36 teams; schools will initially be limited to one team. If fewer than 36 teams register by the deadline of March 9, schools may register additional teams.

Treasure Hunt

On Thursday evening, there will be a Mathematics Treasure Hunt for students and their advisors. Students will use mathematics to solve clues and look for a “treasure.” This is a fun, non-competitive event that will give students an opportunity to meet and work with students from other colleges and universities. It is also greatly appreciated if math club advisors would be willing to help at this event.

Graduate School and Career Fair

In this venue, students considering graduate school in mathematical sciences have opportunities to meet with representatives of various graduate programs. In addition, those seeking jobs in industry, business or government in the mathematical sciences can meet with potential employers. Faculty mentors are also welcome.

Math T-shirt Contest

The best mathematics T-shirt at the meeting will be recognized with an announcement, a certificate, and a featured picture in the fall newsletter. Get your Math Club organized now for a great T-shirt in the spring.

Graduate Student Career Development Workshop

Are you unsure how to proceed after graduation? Do you have questions about teaching? Would you like to expand your network of contacts? This workshop is designed for graduate students at both the Masters and PhD level. Topics include the job search, different types of jobs available, job application materials, interviewing, and negotiating. The workshop will also include a discussion on teaching and offer networking opportunities with those recently and not-so-recently out of graduate school. A limited number of travel grants are available. There is no cost to attend the workshop.
