Math Treasure Hunt
On Thursday evening (March 27), 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. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help, please contact Julie Barnes (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will be meeting in the lobby of Thompson Hall. Check-in is between 7:00pm and 7:30pm with the event starting at 7:30pm.
Teams of three or four undergraduates will compete in a mathematical version of the well-known answer-and-question game. Competition is limited to the first twelve schools that register. 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 in the auditorium of Grimsley Hall. To register a team or to find out more, contact John Harris (email@example.com) or Mike Mossinghoff (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In this venue, students considering graduate school in mathematical sciences have opportunities to meet with representatives of various graduate programs and companies. The fair is scheduled at 11:10am - 12:40pm on Friday, March 28, in Greater Issues Room & Room 228 of Mark Clark Hall . Pizzas, chips and drinks will be provided.
Representatives of graduate schools and companies should contact Mei Chen (email@example.com) to register their participation ($25 fee payable to MAA-SE). Click here to get a copy of the registration form.
