The 38th annual Math Day will be held in the Lory Student Center on Nov. 3. Since 1997, the Mathematics department has hosted this event. Math Day attracts 300 to 400 of the best high school math students from Colorado and neighboring states.
Math Day highlights the university to attract incoming students through different competitions and campus informational sessions. This annual event gives the Department an opportunity to maintain close relationships with Colorado secondary schools, and allows for new ties to be formed with neighboring states. The PROBE (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Efforts) examination rewards the 10 ten highest scoring students with scholarships at CSU as mathematics majors.
Math Day promotes interest and rewards excellence in mathematics, creates relationships with other mathematic departments, and recruits excellent mathematics students to Colorado State University. Events include PROBE which is a written examination that features challenging problems, TEAM which is a college bowl-type tournament to give possible future students an experience unlike any other, and TEACHERS which is a coffee and donut networking session that is followed by discussions of different mathematics topic lead by teachers throughout the event.
The event will be scattered throughout rooms in the LSC. For more information, click here.
