Math Club Discussion Thread

  1. Oct 19, 2012 #1
    Is anybody hear an officer or regular member of your university or high school math club?

    I'm the vice president of the math club at USF, and I thought it might be nice to have a kind of "conversation" thread where we might exchange ideas. I've posted several separate threads before, but I thought if we could get something less formal going it might be nice.

    I just proposed a great project to my group which I think will be very successful. I am having them find math-related news articles in popular science type journals or newspapers, come up and talk about the story as reported, and *then* go find the original research article and discuss what it says, what type of math was involved, etc. And see if there is a difference.

    Today we had a great talk on Fractals by one of our professors.

    Where is your club? What's your function there? What are you doing right now? How are things going?

    It's been awhile, but I thought I'd try and bump this.

    We're having some trouble finding activities/speakers at the moment. The officers are very busy. On the up side, I am trying to get as many people as possible in my club to apply for REUs right now.
