Math Club

The SIUC Math Club is a largely informal club dedicated to improving students' understanding of mathematics and how it impacts their lives. While the primary focus of the Club is on those undergraduates whose major is mathematics, as well as on graduate students who are earning an advanced degree in mathematics, we are happy to include other members of the SIUC community who are interested in mathematics in our activities as well.
