Attention All Undergraduate mathematics majors!

The Institute For Mathematical and Statistical Innovation will host the 3rd BRING MATH workshop will take place October 3-4, 2024.  The workshop will be hosted at Argonne National Laboratory and sponsored by IMSI.  Its purpose is to expose undergraduates to research in mathematics and statistics being done at Argonne and its connections with real world applications, and to educate them about  opportunities related to the mathematical sciences which are available to them, both during summers and longer term.  The workshop is also open to faculty who wish to accompany a group of students to the workshop.  Applications are due by June 28, 2024.  


The Thirteenth International Workshop on Coding and Cryptography (WCC, 2024)

Mini-Math Day

Mini Math Day 2018 Group Photo


The Department of Mathematical Sciences hosts approximately 100 to 150 fourth grade students from Palm Beach or Broward counties. Our Thirteenth Annual Mini-Math Day was originally scheduled for May 2020 for Crystal Lake Elementary's 4th Grade but was canceled due to Covid-19. We were able to host the same students from Crystal Lakes's 5th Grade in June 2021 with our virtual edition. We hope to welcome our next group in Spring 2024!

The program begins with a welcome and a short quiz followed by Dr. Tomas Schonbek's team contest. After lunch, students were previously treated to an educational demonstration presented by former science teacher Glen Govertsen, with demonstrations in what he called the “Mr. G Science Show,” where he combines the dynamics of music, lasers, raw eggs, fiber optics and other materials with clear explanations to motivate students in science and mathematics. Future events will include an engaging/hands-on mathematical presentation by one of our department faculty.

Educational mathematics game prizes are awarded to both individual and team competition winners.

Photos from our events will be posted on our college's Facebook Page. Search for FAU Charles E. Schmidt College of Science and LIKE our page!
