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