Carthage has more than 120 student groups and organizations through which students can get involved, explore possible careers, meet other students, work closely with faculty advisors, and perform community service. The following organizations are popular with mathematics students.
The Mathematics Club
The Carthage Mathematics Club unifies a broad group of students who encourage intellectual growth and promote mathematical awareness on campus and to the community. The organization sponsors several events throughout the year, creating activities, learning enhancements, and recognition for all levels and branches of mathematics. Math Club is not just about math! All majors/minors are welcome to join at any point throughout the year. Math Club provides students with an opportunity to get observation hours for student teaching, volunteer at high schools to tutor math, network with Carthage alum, take on leadership roles, participate in Family Fun Night, and much more. This club is about having fun and is always open to new ideas and opportunities.
Face Off! is a mathematics quiz show with questions from the broad realm of mathematics. At least two competitions are held each year: at the MAA-Wisconsin Section Meeting every April, and at the Pi Mu Epsilon Regional Math Conference every November. Carthage fields a team for most Face Off! competitions. The Carthage team has won eight of its last nine competitions. Read more
Pi Mu Epsilon
This national honorary society is for those students who have displayed superior academic achievement in mathematics. The society aims to promote the development of mathematics and provides opportunities for involvement in the mathematics community at both the local and national level.
Carthage Microgravity Team
Each year, Carthage fields a Microgravity Team to compete for a place in NASA’s Systems Engineering Educational Discovery program. Students in physics, computer science, mathematics and chemistry have participated. Carthage has successfully participated in this program every year since the program’s beginning in 2008. SEED pairs NASA researchers with student teams tasked with designing and building experiments in support of NASA mission research priorities. Learn more.
