Mid-Cities Math Circle

The main goal of the Mid-Cities Math Circle seminar is to provide a stimulating environment for local area middle- and high-school students to learn mathematics. Regular attendance of the (MC)² seminar will help students not only improve their individual problem-solving skills, but also enjoy and understand mathematics better. (MC)² is designed for students in grades 8-12. Students in lower grades are welcome as well but should be advised that a solid mathematical background is required in order to follow the discussions.

Faculty advisor: Dimitar Grantcharov


Pi Mu Epsilon Honor Society UTA Chapter

Pi Mu Epsilon is a mathematics honor society consisting of chapters at various approved institutions of learning, and affiliate chapters at approved non-academic institutions. The UTA chapter is the Texas Iota chapter. It was chartered in 1975 and was the 191st chapter of the society. The society's purpose is to promote scholarly activity in mathematics among students in academic institutions, and among the staffs of qualified non-academic institutions.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)

SIAM is a graduate student organization dedicated to promoting industrial and applied mathematics. SIAM fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in various application areas. Applied mathematics, in partnership with computational science, is essential in solving many real-world problems. Through publications, research and community, the mission of SIAM is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.
