Title: Tales of Our Forefathers
Abstract: This is not a mathematics talk but it is a talk for mathematicians. Too often, we think of historical mathematicians as only names assigned to theorems. With vignettes and anecdotes, I’ll convince you they were also human beings and that, as the Chinese say, “May you live in interesting times” really is a curse.
Time: Nov 14th 4:00-5:00PM 3106 JKB
Thursday, Sept 29 at 5:30 pm at the Tanner Building in room 251.
All majors welcome and pizza is provided!
Explore Masters & PhD Options.
Meet with Faculty about their research.
Talk to Current Grad Students.
Choosing a major is tough. BYU’s wide variety of options can be a bit overwhelming, and gathering information on each one can feel virtually impossible.
The Math Department wants to do everything possible to make this selection process easier for students. If you have ever had any interest in mathematics, or maybe you just did really well in a math class, you are invited to attend an info session about the Mathematics degree on Thursday, Sept 22nd at 5:00pm . The meeting is intended to provide all the basic information you need to know about being a mathematics major or minor. In addition, there will be a discussion on all the different career options you would have with a degree in mathematics. A question and answer session after the general presentation will follow.
If a successful future in mathematics is not enough to convince someone to attend the info session, pizza may do the trick. Free pizza will be provided for all who attend. So if you have an interest in mathematics, and have friends who also enjoy math and free food, then come and join us!
Celebrate the start of the year with food! And the Math Department.

Recently, 3D-printing technology has become more affordable and consumer-friendly. As a consequence, its applications have become more varied and widespread, including art and medicine. In mathematics, this technology has applications for both teaching and research. In this talk, I will share some of my experiences with 3D-printing. I will also outline the 3D-printing process, as well as some programs and techniques you can use to create your own mathematical models. This talk will be accessible and interesting to both students and faculty alike.
