Math Groups that are Run by Students in SoM
Students in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech are known for their strong scientific background, motivation, hard work, academic potential, and for their love of organizing!
In Fall 2019 a new student run group, the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Undergraduate Student Chapter will be coming to SoM for the first time. Here are some of the other math groups in SoM that are student run:
Club Math is a social organization for students at Georgia Tech with an interest in mathematics. We meet weekly to discuss problems and puzzles, play games, and learn about interesting topics beyond the scope of what is taught in the classroom. Throughout the coming semester, we plan on expanding our catalog of activities to include crafts such as mathematical knitting and origami, talks organized and presented by Club Math students, and occasional events such as movie nights.
Student chapters of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) are organized at colleges and universities to encourage the promotion of applied mathematics and computational science to young mathematicians. Student chapters provide opportunities to share ideas, learn about careers in applied and computational mathematics, and develop networks with faculty and fellow students.
The Georgia Tech chapter organizes a weekly student seminar and organizes/takes part in a yearly conference involving the other student chapters of the Southeast.
American Mathematical Society's Graduate Student Chapters enhance opportunities for students to make contacts with students and faculty at their own or other institutions, interact with more established mathematicians, discover career opportunities, sponsor social functions for the mathematical community, find assistance for attending AMS meetings, and engage in outreach efforts to local middle and high schools.
The brainstorming sessions were piloted in Fall 2017 and have continued ever since, offering graduate students to relate their research struggles within a relaxed and collegial atmosphere.
Going forward, graduate students will be working with the SIAM Student Chapter to organize these sessions, with the help of Molei Tao.
The Association for Women in Mathematics chapter at Georgia Tech was chartered in 2016 by Samantha Petti and Cvetelina Hill. AWM programs inspire and empower individual students, faculty, and researchers and works to bring about institutional and societal change benefiting all. Membership is open to everyone.
The goal of the Actuarial Club at Georgia Tech is to assist prospective and practicing actuaries from the Georgia Tech community enabling them to come together to help one another find resources, give guidance, and make new contacts.
There are also several student run seminars that are active.
- Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar
- ACO Student Seminar
- Geometry Topology Seminar
- Research Horizons Seminar
- Dynamical Systems Working Seminar
