The Math Society presents:



A Look at M.C. Escher



by Emily Bolger



Come learn about M. C. Escher and how this influential artist has made a powerful impact in the math world!  We will discuss who Escher was, his inspirations, his most famous paintings, and why mathematicians like to talk about him.  We will even discuss Math Society's trip to the M.C. Escher exhibit earlier this semester!



Join us on February 26, 2019 at 3:15pm

Epsilion Talk by Steven Berger



February 21, 2019



4pm at Sally 335 - 3rd floor Conference room



Clever Problem Solving is not only the work of geniuses; it is

what mathematicians do on a daily basis. It involves

synthesizing multiple tools, properties, and theorems in order to

solve a mathematical question. In this talk, we will apply clever

problem solving to two geometric questions in order to gain a

deeper understanding of both geometry and problem solving.

On Saturday Jan. 26th, the Math Society took a trip into NYC to visit the Escher exhibit. Here’s what some of the students have to say!



“My favorite part of the trip was spending time with my friends in an exciting place that was quite new to me. I enjoyed the exhibit, especially the prints made from patterns carved in wood. Metamorphosis II was my favorite of these prints.”

As part of an independent study, each week Edward Harbison will be giving a short 15-30 minute lesson on a new mathematical topic and how it relates to some clever problem solving ideas related to the Putnam Exam.  



Every is invited. Just show up. 



Tuesdays, 10:45 - 11:30, Sally Conference Room 335.
