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. Before COVID we also had an ongoing problem of the month series and annual calculus competition. If you’re interested in getting involved and leading the club, come to a club meeting or e-mail Dr. Beyerl.
Spring 2022 Events
We’re back in person and meeting every other Thursday during X-period. Watch your e-mail for announcements.
- 2/3/22 – TBD
- 1/20/22 – Statistics: Geometric Series & Port Royal
Past Events
Fall 2020 through Fall 2021 was a bit sporadic due to COVID and most of those records have been lost.
