Welcome to the HMC Math Club and SIAM Website Last Update: 6/9/2014 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.

Math Club Griffith Observatory Field Trip, Ambigrams

School in Mathematics Presentation with Andrea Bertozzi, HMC
Integration Bee! (With prizes), Mini-golfing

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.
