Happy Fall 2015!
Welcome to the HMC Math Club and SIAM Website

Last Update: 21/10/2015
Who are we?
HMC SIAM Student Chapter/Math Club is a student-run club that organizes math-related activities and invites math speakers. The club hosts weekly Math Teas with food and drink and promotes student-faculty bonding events. Some events that we've done before are: Prof. Benjamin's Mathemagics, HMC/Caltech Math Club Griffith Observatory Field Trip, Ambigrams with Scott Kim, Graduate School in Mathematics Presentation with Andrea Bertozzi, HMC Integration Bee! (With prizes), Mini-golfing with Profs, Rock Climbing with Profs. The club also works closely with the Math Department to organize barbeques, speakers, etc. 

Harvey Mudd College is an official chapter of Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematicians (SIAM). This is the chapter's third year! The mission of the SIAM chapter is to 

1) involve undergraduates with applied mathematics,
2) Invite speakers.
3) organize math-related activities and
4) make students aware of prizes and conferences sponsored by SIAM.

Travel Funding for Conferences
The Mathematics Department has travel funding for conferences due to a generous donation by the Jonsson Family. To apply for funds, please fill out the Google form here well before your travel dates (as soon as you decide to go):

  • Welcome Back! Welcome back to a new year with Math Club. This year will be an especially important year for math club because of Nelson Series. The topic of this year's Nelson Series is "Power and Beauty of Mathematics" and includes speakers such as Brian Greene, Danica McKellar, Gary Lorden, Keith Devlin and Steven Strogatz. This serves as a great opportunity for HMCsquared to show off. Besides this, Math Club plans to host other social events throughout the year; the first one being Math books and Minigolfing! Finally, this is SIAM's second year in operation. This year will serve as another opportunity for the chapter to grow and expand its outreach on the campus. HMC Math Club
