About Us
(for the curious)

Purpose

The official purpose of MathCats is to foster community among math majors and to spark mathematical interest in everyone else. Our goal for this semester is to create a math culture at the University of Arizona that reaches from the Math Department across the entire campus.

Activities

This fall, MathCats will be running AMUC (Arizona Mathematics Undergraduate Conference) !

We also will be coordinating Math Awareness Week in the spring and holding a campus-wide celebration of Pi Day (3/14).

We will have several luncheons with visiting mathematicians throughout the semester, talks featuring local mathematicians, and workshops on math-related subjects.

Students interested in the Putnam Examination should email me, as we will be having practice and study sessions for those taking the exam.

We may also hold math-related events, tutoring, and workshops at local public schools. Details as this idea develops.
