Every term, the Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Combinatorics & Optimization Club (henceforth referred to as PMC) hosts a night of student-run seminars, the Short Attention Span Mth Seminars (SASMS for short). Students give 25-minute seminars on interesting mathematical subjects to their peers (i.e. you). Talks should be aimed towards a general audience, accessible to all undergraduate mathematics students. Dinner and refreshments will be provided. If you would like to find out more and/or sign up to give a talk, check out our website at http://pmclub.uwaterloo.ca, come to our club office at MC3033, or check our our PMC SASMS Facebook event. The event will be held on Wednesday, November 4, from 4:30PM to 11:00PM in a location TBA.
On Wednesday, November 11, the PMC will be hosting the 3rd annual "It's Over 9000!" mathematics competition. Contestants will be given a mathematical expression/question and must determine whether or not the value/answer is over 9000! (The ! is purely for excitement, not to mean the factorial unary operator) There is food to be eaten, prizes to be won, and fun to be had. Partner up with a friend, try it out solo, or just come out to watch the matchups of students vs. professors. To find out more, check out our website at http://pmclub.uwaterloo.ca, come to our club office at MC3033, or check our our PMC It's Over 9000! Facebook event.
