Activities > Math Club
The Math Club is a recognized student academic club with many social and educational activities aimed at anyone interested in mathematics or statistics. A typical get-together is attended by math students, their friends, and some math faculty.
The Math Club has no formal membership requirements. Attend a few Math Coffees and join us for a few other activities and you can consider yourself a member! In addition to Math Coffees, activities include math trivia contests, picnics, potluck dinners and parties, trips to student math conferences, and friendly sporting contests with other academic clubs. The primary goal of the club is to have fun.
If you have suggestions for activities or any other questions, please see Dr. Peirce in 1027 Cowley.
- COMAP Modeling Contest
(Information on Previous contests
Five teams of UW-L students competed in the COMAP (the Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications) Mathematical Contest in Modeling in February 2009. The UW-L teams competed with over 2000 institutions from around the world to construct a solution to a challenging real-world problem, using mathematical modeling. Two of the five teams spent an intense four days working to construct a creative mathematical solution to a problem involving the design and control of traffic flow in traffic circles. The other three teams focused their efforts on modeling the energy use of a nation transitioning from landline phones to cell phones.
