Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honor Society
Angelo State University has a chapter of the Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics. Pi Mu Epsilon is dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. Requirements to be inducted into the Pi Mu Epsilon and induction information can be found here.
Mathematics has been around for millennia, and many branches of mathematics have developed over those thousands of years. As such, there are many fascinating mathematical topics, new and old, that never make it into the mathematics classroom. The Mathematics Seminar features short talks on such topics presented by ASU mathematics faculty and students. Look for the fliers posted around the Mathematics-Computer Science building for the time and place of the next seminar talk or click here for information on the next talk.
Problem: (September, 2015) How many ways can you make change for 50 cents using pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters? For example, 50 pennies is one way, 1 quarter and 5 nickels is another.
How to participate:
- Solve the problem.
- Write up your solution and deliver it to Mrs. Campbell (office: MCS 220H) by the deadline posted on the POM bulletin board.
Be sure to include your name and class (FR, SO, etc.) on your write-up. (Only Angelo State University students are eligible to enter.) If more than one correct solution is submitted, the winning entry will be chosen based on the earliest time submission and on the basis of clarity, completeness, insightfulness, and originality. Solutions may be typeset or handwritten (and neatness always helps). Scientific Notebook is available in the MCS Computer Lab.
Entries will be evaluated by an expert panel of judges to determine the best solution. Each month’s winner will receive a T-shirt and a certificate of recognition signed by the ASU Problem Coordinator and the Editor of the national “Problem Solving Challenge”. Only one T-shirt per person per academic year.
