Open Chalk Night

Event Description: 

Open chalk night is a monthly meetup for graduate and undergraduate students to practice presenting mathematics at a blackboard to an audience. Modeled after the Graduate Teaching Seminar presentations and open mic nights where would-be musicians play songs to a distracted audience, this event is a time for students to socialize and develop comfort communicating mathematics and recovering from mistakes.
Here’s how it works: Bring a problem, sign up to present on the sign-in sheet, wait your turn, then take the chalk and present. Problems can come from anywhere (homework, contests, etc), but please keep it to something that can be presented in 5-10 minutes.
Snacks and beverages will be provided.
