Kappa Mu Epsilon
Kappa Mu Epsilon is a national organization founded in 1931 to promote the interest of mathematics among undergraduate students. Its members recognize the great service of mathematics in the development of civilization. Kappa Mu Epsilon is a society for undergraduate students, as well as beginning graduate students and faculty, who have a strong commitment to mathematics.
The primary purposes of Kappa Mu Epsilon are:
- to further interest in mathematics,
- to emphasize the role of mathematics in the development of civilization,
- to develop an appreciation of the power and the beauty of mathematics,
- to recognize the outstanding mathematical achievement of its members,
- to familiarize members with the advancements being made in mathematics.
In 1998, the Department of Mathematics was granted a charter to form a chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, known as the Georgia Beta Chapter. To be eligible for membership, a student must have completed at least three semesters of college work, rank in the upper 35 % of his or her class, have completed at least three mathematics courses including at least one calculus course and have a 3.0 grade point average in his or her mathematics courses.
Students interested in joining the mathematics club should contact the current president Zachary Monaco to be added to the email list. Students involved in the math club attend events and invited talks, participate in competitive activities such as math jeopardy, organize social events and much more. Check back for upcoming events.
