# Student Organizations

The Texas A&M Math Department has student chapters of two national mathematics organizations, the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and Pi Mu Epsilon. These organizations educate students about math outside their typical course work and to give them an understanding of possible careers in math and math-related fields.

## TAMU Math Club

The Math Club is an umbrella organization for all the other organizations. It shares officers with Pi Mu Epsilon. There are monthly meetings usually on Tuesday evenings. Attendance at meetings is open to all, regardless of membership! At the meetings, speakers are invited to talk to the members. We often arrange for prospective employers to visit and give presentations about their companies to the members. Additionally, we sponsor special lectures given by different faculty members who volunteer their time and knowledge. We also distribute information about departmental activities and regional conferences and contests in mathematics.

## Mathematical Association of America

The Texas A&M student chapter of the Mathematical Association of America is open to all students that have an interest in mathematics. There are no scholastic requirements such as class standing or grade point average. Students from any major are welcome to join. The cost of membership is $20 per year for a student who chooses to receive either The College Mathematics Journal, Mathematics Magazine, or Math Horizons.** Even if decide not to become a member, you can still attend the meetings.** For students who choose The American Mathematical Monthly, the cost is $30 per year. In addition to receiving their choice of journals, students will receive discounts on meeting registration fees and MAA publications, information on graduate study and career opportunities, information about speakers, and opportunities to participate in student paper sessions at sectional meetings. For more information about the sectional meetings see the MAA Sectional Meeting Schedule . Please read the constitution for our chapter of the MAA.

## Pi Mu Epsilon

Pi Mu Epsilon is an honorary mathematics organization whose motto is to promote scholarship and mathematics. Students are required to meet certain requirements in order to join Pi Mu Epsilon. There is a $30 lifetime membership fee. This includes a one-year membership to the Pi Mu Epsilon Journal. Like MAA, there is no membership required to attend the meetings. The constitution for our chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon can be found here.

## Aggie Actuaries

The Aggie Actuaries is an organization which provides information on careers in actuarial science and on the exams given by the Casualty Actuarial Association and the Society of Actuaries.

## Annual Events

- April is Math Awareness Month and each year the Math Department hosts a Freshmen Sophomore Math Contest. More details can be found at the highlighted link.
- Other activities include an Integral Bee and Derivative Bee.
- The William Lowell Putnam Mathematics Competition is a national undergraduate mathematics competition. Recognition is accorded to both team and individual performance. A good score can be significant in winning admission to graduate studies. More information about the Putnam can be found at Mathematical Association of America. Our liaison for the Putnam Challenge is Doug Hensley.
