Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Club Meetings

The departmental chapter of the MAA meets regularly for lunch to hear talks or participate in other mathematically related activities. Anyone interested in mathematics is invited to attend the meetings. Contact one of the faculty advisors for more information, or simply show up to any meeting.

 

Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honor Society

Angelo State University has a chapter of the Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honor Society. 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 Seminar

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 of the Month (POM)

How to participate:

  1. Solve the problem.
  2. Write up your solution and deliver it to Dr. Bailey (office: MCS 220G) 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 reward and a certificate of recognition signed by the ASU Problem Coordinator and the Editor of the national “Problem Solving Challenge”. Only one reward per person per academic year.

Mobius Strip Competition

August Ferdinand Möbius (Nov 17, 1790 - Sept 26, 1868) is best known for his work in a branch of mathematics called topology, and for the two dimensional strip that bears his name.

Each fall, the mathematics program hosts a competition in honor of Mobius (and for fun!).
