|Putnam Math Competition
The Putnam competition annualy takes place in December. From the description:
The Putnam examination tests originality, technical competence and familiarity with the formal theories embodied in undergraduate mathematics. Questions cut across the bounds of various disciplines, and include self-contained questions that do not fit into any of the usual categories. These self-contained questions can involve elementary concepts from group theory, set theory, graph theory, lattice theory, number theory or cardinal arithmetic.

||The Euclidean Society, Augusta State's math club, was chartered as a student organization on May 20, 1975. It is a social club which also provides math related activities like films and speakers. It also serves as the local student chapter of the Mathematical Association of America, MAA.

||The Euclidean Society Math Club will meet in the Math Lab AH-N337 on Friday Oct 16 at 1pm. We'll have refreshment and listen to Ashwin tell us about some summer undergraduate research projects (REU’s) that are available for us students to apply for.
Then we’ll move to a different room to watch the movie “21”, which is based on a true story. Six MIT students studied gambling processes and figured out a way to beat the Las Vegas casino tables (Blackjack – by counting cards). Although banking millions, a lot of problems are arrived, leaving these students struggling in the end.
Euclidean Society student trips to math meetings have included trips to:
