Club Feature: Math Club by Dakota Palmer

In 1974, Edinboro University held the first induction ceremony of Pi Mu Epsilon, the national mathematics society, and the Math Club was born.

The function of the Math Club is to promote mathematics to the Edinboro community.

“Mathematics is all around us and having a club where we can show the appreciation for it and how it’s acknowledged in daily life is what we love to do,” said club president Angela Toth.

There are currently 14 students in the club, but the club is actively recruiting new members.

The club participates in various math and computer science events such as Pi Day and Stem Day. At these events, high schools from around the area come and attend lectures and take part in activities related to math and computer science.

If you like math and would like to share that appreciation with other people who enjoy math, Math Club may be for you. Club members get the chance to do projects and research, as well as participate in campus events.

“We as Math Club members volunteer to help out with these events and even give talks to students about some research that we have done,” Toth said.

“We also get the opportunity to go out to conferences each year to give talks about research that we have done related to math.”

She continued, “Overall, this club has given me a reason to express myself and my appreciation for math to others. If I wasn’t in this club, I wouldn’t have been able to experience all that I have and I’m glad I got the opportunity to be a part of it.”

The club will be hosting a pizza and movie night on Saturday, April 30. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact Angela Toth at at120731@ scots.edinboro.edu.

“We may not be one of the most popular clubs on campus, but we have fun and enjoy doing math along the way,” Toth said.

There are $5 dues each semester, and the club meets every other Tuesday in Ross Hall 113 at 5 p.m.
