DM: Discover Mathematics
Did you like math in high school, but don’t know what to expect about math at MIT? Perhaps you feel a rush from solving an integral or finding a clever solution to a problem? Maybe none of these things apply but you’re looking to try something new?
Whatever the reason, MIT’s Mathematics Department invites you to try Discover Mathematics, an introduction to the fantastical world of math at MIT. You’ll be introduced to many interesting areas of math by undergraduates and professors of the math department, and will get the chance to approach real life problems with a mathematical mindset. Meet and engage with fellow freshmen through a movie night, trivia contest, and more, while learning about life as an MIT math major. Learn new strategies in games like poker and black jack, and explore MIT’s campus and Boston on a virtual scavenger hunt. Come discover new insights into our pattern-filled universe and connect with others interested in math at MIT!
Dates: Wed. August 19- Thurs. August 20, 2020
