Math and More, Coffee and Talks: Opening Social

The week is upon us! Everyday from 2-3:30 we will be hosting math talks in Sara Raynolds Hall (building 104)  Room 107. We have 5 professors, 6 graduate students and 2 undergraduates all very excited to talk with you about their research and the fun they have had helping undergraduates learn about math. Additionally, we will have a zoom link for those who cannot attend in person and talks will be recorded as well. Contact Daniel Havens or Austin Bell for the zoom link.
