GET INVOLVED ON CAMPUS
There is an opportunity for paid work on campus as a MATH MENTOR, helping other students learn math as a tutor at the Math Assistance Center and/or working with a professor in their classroom. This is great experience for anyone who’s considering teaching math (and also a great way for math majors to improve their own math skills and understanding).
Each spring, THE MATH CLUB travels to the meeting of the Mathematical Association of America for our region, usually somewhere in Colorado. This is a great way to meet other math students and faculty in the Rocky Mountain region, and to see new and interesting research in math. Many of our students have also presented their own research at this meeting—our faculty love to work with undergraduates on research, and there’s no shortage of interesting problems!
Black Hills Math Circle
Assist with the BLACK HILLS MATH CIRCLE, a mathematics enrichment activity for area high school students. These students visit the BHSU campus on Saturday mornings and explore topics such as the geometry of gerrymandering, the combinatorics of the card game SET, or introductory computer programming on TI calculators through interactive activities presented by BHSU faculty, students, and area educators.
