Fundamental to Mathematics is the action of thinking.  Just like a PE course, where bodily activity enhances your physical fitness, Denksport will strengthen your brain muscle, enhance your self-esteem, and boost your immune system against the NR virus.

On Monday, October 1, at 11:00am in SH304 Professor Herman Servatius will discuss The Mountaineer's Equation

The equipment for Mountaineers and Mathematicians is usually quite different.  In the mathematical sciences we rarely need fifty feet of rope or an ice axe, and a mountaineer rarely makes use the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra.  For this Denksport, we will show how some of our mathematical gear could be of interest to a mountaineer. Cleats not required.
