## Math Club

The WPI Mathematics Club, informally known as the “Math Club” is a student organization whose purpose is to foster interest, understanding and enjoyment of mathematics by the WPI community. The club organizes informal, weekly sessions in the Math Lounge in Stratton Hall to discuss the latest interesting math topics. The Math Club also organizes “Cool Math Talks,” a monthly presentation, often featuring WPI faculty who talk about their research interests. In addition, depending on its leadership, the Club can sponsor activities such as math contests, Pi Day fun, or special events corresponding to the yearly theme of Mathematics Awareness Month (April). The Math Club can be viewed as an umbrella organization for all of WPIs student mathematics groups.
