### Welcome!

All students interested in mathematics are invited to attend the club’s events, which include talks aimed at students, problem-solving sessions, and panel discussions. The talks generally will not require a background beyond calculus and a little linear algebra. Free refreshments will be provided.

**Officers**: For 2022-2023, the president is Jacob Lowry, the vice-president is Keegan Reck, the treasurer is Jason Dai, and the secretary is Julia Guskind. The faculty advisor is Keith Conrad.

**Interested in joining?** The math club is open to all registered UConn students. We have a group page on UConntact, on Twitter, and on Discord. Please go to our UConntact page and click on the Join Organization button.

**Interested in a topic?** If you are a UConn student who wants to hear a talk about some part of mathematics, especially one which may not be in a regularly offered course, write to the email address above and hopefully we can find a suitable speaker to address your interests.

**Videos**: Check out some past math club talks on the math department’s You Tube channel: Nick Juricic’s talk on differentiation under the integral sign on Sept. 30, 2020, Keith Conrad’s talk on patterns that don’t last on Sept. 9, 2015, and Jon Hanke’s talk on the geometry of projective space on April 4, 2012. Other videos are available on the UConn math department’s YouTube Channel.

**History**: The math club was first established on May 11, 1932 and started meeting monthly in the 1932–1933 academic year. The first faculty advisor was William Fitch Cheney, Jr., who entertained the students with magic tricks before each talk.
