The math club at UCA promotes math and has fun at the same time. Meetings are typically every other Thursday during X-period in MCS 213. We also have an ongoing problem of the month series. Every year the math club organizes the annual calculus competition.
Spring 2021 Events
We’ve been up-ended with the pandemic. We’ll be doing something during the spring, but we don’t know what yet. Check back in late January for information.
