Mathday will be held on Monday, March 25, 2019. The plenary speaker
will be Kristin DeVleming, Assistant Professor of Mathematics,
University of California, San Diego. She will speak on Adventures
in Topology. Do you know what a surface is? Did you know that the mug you drink out of and the donut you snack on are the "same" surface? We'll try to answer these questions while exploring a field of mathematics known as topology. We'll explore common objects, studying edges, loops, and holes, and along the way will encounter some wild surfaces you have never seen before. We'll cut, untangle, and gets hands-on in this topological adventure.
There will be talks,
seminars, labs, and more activities from 10 am until noon and from
1:20 pm until 2:00 pm.
Registration forms, which will include the schdedule of fees, are
now available. For additional information, contact:
