Chapter description and activities

The American Mathematical Society was founded to serve the mathematical community's research, education, inclusion, and connection to other disciplines. Our Graduate Student Chapter carries out this mission in part through facilitating inter- and intradisciplinary student and faculty collaboration, educating students in best practices for successfully navigating graduate studies, and creating opportunities for students to learn about available careers.

    Tuesday, 14 March 2023 at 2:00-3:00
    Maxim Doucet Hall room 206
    Faculty, staff, undergraduate, and graduate students are invited to join the AMS Graduate Student Chapter in celebrating Pi Day/International Day of Mathematics. We will serve several different types of pie as well as coffee and tea and offer pi-related activities (you are welcome to bring ideas of your own - extra pie goes to the person with the most creative activity). The gathering is very informal, so feel free to drop in for a time of socialization as your schedule allows.
