的 Mathematics and Computer Science Club

Membership in the Mathematics and Computer Science Club is open to all program majors, as well as other interested students. 的 club provides an opportunity for students to share their common interests in an informal way.

俱乐部最传统的活动是一年一度的托里晚宴,这是 每年4月举行,以表彰即将毕业的数学和计算机科学专业学生. 军官 and advisor organize the dinner. One highlight of the evening is a talk, usually about her/his work or research, given by an alumna/us. Another source of excitement is the 宣布托里奖、埃金奖、莱维特奖和写作奖的获奖者.

传统上,秋季学期以一个项目披萨派对开始,在这个派对上,专业 与同学分享他们的暑期实习、研究和国际经验 students and faculty. Further club activities include field trips to Baltimore and Washington, DC, museums, films, guest lecturers about mathematics or computer science, fundraising events, a year-end picnic, and more.

的 first club meeting of each academic year is announced in mathematics and computer science classes, as well as by email.

In 2005, 云顶集团 College was awarded a chapter of 是, the national Honorary Society for Mathematics. 的 mission of the society is to encourage scholarship and scholarly activities among undergraduate mathematics students. 学生, who by virtue 他们的学术前途和成就被邀请加入社会,见面 每月一次,互相支持彼此的专业发展. 活动 include guest speakers, problem-solving sessions, book or film discussions, and practice sessions for upcoming mathematical presentations. 的 chapter holds induction ceremonies at the Torrey dinner in the spring.

Academic 竞争s

在学年中,有许多数学和数学的机会 计算机科学专业的学生以个人身份参加学术竞赛 在团队中.

每年秋季学期,计算机协会都会举办一次中大西洋会议 区域编程比赛,优胜者参加全国决赛. 每一个 participating college or university fields teams (possibly including graduate students), 哪个能在最短的时间内解决最多的编程问题. 虽然 比赛相当具有挑战性,云顶集团队的排名高达第四 place in the region.

云顶集团数学的学生也有机会作为一个团队竞争. 一年一度的 数学建模竞赛在第二学期开始. 每一个 three-person team chooses one of two open-ended applied mathematics problems and then 用一个周末的时间研究并写一篇解决方案论文. 云顶集团 teams have received awards a number of times, competing against several hundred teams from other colleges and universities.

由于这个月的问题是由我们的Pi Mu分会赞助的, we can send one student per year to participate in the U.S. National Collegiate Mathematics 竞争. We have performed well in this competition.
