13th Annual Math Poster Session
It is not enough to have a good mind. The main thing is to use it well. —Rene Descartes, mathematician and philosopher
Descartes surely would have been impressed at brainpower displayed in the atrium at the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences during the annual poster session held by the Department of Mathematics. Dozens of graduate and high-level undergraduate students showed off their understanding of some of life’s most basic yet complicated rules by designing artwork that outlined various math problems and theorems. From economics to astronomy, the students showed that math is at the heart of many disciplines.
The chief goal of the session is to showcase the work that graduate students are doing on their theses, as well as some of the interesting projects taking place in senior-level math courses. In the photo, Executive Dean Chand Midha talks to math graduate student Ethan York about the theories behind his poster.
"However, one of the aims is to show people the broad scope of the discipline and its applications,” said Dr. Timothy Norfolk, chair of the Department of Mathematics.” A charge which I gave the organizers this year was to have posters to which the response would be `I didn't know that this material was mathematics’."
About 40 math students displayed their posters, but dozens and dozens of other students – from English to dance majors – came to view the work of the numbers wizards.
