Six Angelo State University faculty members have been awarded three grants from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to fund their projects that will provide free open-source course materials to students in select classes, eliminating their need to purchase textbooks.
The departmental chapter of the MAA meets regularly for lunch to hear talks or participate in other mathematically related activities. Anyone interested in mathematics is invited to attend the meetings. Contact one of the faculty advisors for more information, or simply show up to any meeting.
Angelo State University has a chapter of the Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honor Society. Pi Mu Epsilon is dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. For more information about requirements visit the Pi Mu Epsilon web page.
Mathematics has been around for millennia, and many branches of mathematics have developed over those thousands of years. As such, there are many fascinating mathematical topics, new and old, that never make it into the mathematics classroom. The Mathematics Seminar features short talks on such topics presented by ASU mathematics faculty and students. Look for the fliers posted around the Mathematics-Computer Science building for the time and place of the next seminar talk or visit the seminar web page for information on the next talk.
Problem of the Month (POM)
How to participate:
- Solve the problem.
- Write up your solution and deliver it to Dr. Bailey (office: MCS 220G) by the deadline posted on the POM bulletin board.
Be sure to include your name and class (FR, SO, etc.) on your write-up. (Only Angelo State University students are eligible to enter.) If more than one correct solution is submitted, the winning entry will be chosen based on the earliest time submission and on the basis of clarity, completeness, insightfulness, and originality. Solutions may be typeset or handwritten (and neatness always helps). Scientific Notebook is available in the MCS Computer Lab.
Entries will be evaluated by an expert panel of judges to determine the best solution. Each month’s winner will receive a reward and a certificate of recognition signed by the ASU Problem Coordinator and the Editor of the national “Problem Solving Challenge”. Only one reward per person per academic year.
