We focus on outreach to the community, sharing our passions for math, engaging in mathematics lectures and demonstrations, and providing tutoring to other students.

    Participating in student-led research groups
    Assisting in MathCats projects and activities
    Actively learning and presenting material.
  • 2

    Increase our chances of success by attending resume-building workshops, gaining information regarding available internships/jobs, and networking.

    Provide tutoring services to a full spectrum of students (elementary, high school, and university-level).

  • 4

    Outreach to individuals in need of foundational math skills by partnering with Iskashitaa Refugee Network.
