The UNO Math Club has revived itself in the past year and has worked to increase its visibility on campus. We host a social event each month to help our members get to know each other. These have included a "Mathoween" party, a white elephant holiday party, a game night, a movie night, an end of the year cookout and more. We also hosted a Math Career Night for all Math Club members and STEM majors, featuring employers such as the FBI Omaha Field Office, National Indemnity, and West Corporation.
We are trying to gauge interest in joining/starting an actuarial club/organization here on campus. Studying for the actuarial exams is a rigorous process. By forming a club students could hold weekly study sessions catered toward passing specific exams. In addition, students could co-pay for online study materials. This would greatly reduce the amount each has to pay for study materials.
This would potentially cost each student about $40 rather than each individually buying study materials for hundreds of dollars. In additition, the club may be able to host speakers from the community to discuss the actuarial field, SOA membership, and internships in the Omaha area.
If interested please contact the Advisor/Academic Coordinator!
Pi Mu Epsilon is the National Mathematics Honorary Scoeity dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. To promote mathematics, the National Pi Mu Epsilon Council sponsors an annual conference in conjunction with the Mathematics Association of America’s (MAA) annual MathFest. Traditionally, this conference occurs the first weekend of August. Undergraduate members of Pi Mu Epsilon are encouraged to give a 15 minute presentation on a mathematical topic of interest.
The content of the presentation does not have to include original research. Although some presentations may impart new results, the majority often show results of exploration of a topic beyond what is traditionally covered in an undergraduate class. Feel free to contact a member of the PME Council to verify a topic is suitable for presentation.
