The Department of Mathematics and Statistical Science is home to several student clubs. Everyone is welcome and invited to participate in each of these clubs. Grab a friend and join the fun!
Machine Learning Group
This working group is organized by Audrey Fu (Stat), Frank Gao (Math), Linh Nguyen (Math), Min Xian (CS), and Aleksandar Vakanski (CS). In this working group, we will discuss a wide range of topics on machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence, statistical learning, and their applications in science and society. We encourage participants to share their research or lead the discussion on recent or classic research papers.
The working group meetings are also listed as a one-credit seminar course MATH 400 SEM: Machine Learning (CRN 76532). The course runs from Jan 12 through May 13. Students who register for this course will be expected to have some participation in the meetings.
Day/Time: Fridays at 3:30-4:20pm (Pacific time).
Location: In-person in IRIC 352 and via Zoom.
Fun activities related to mathematics take place in a relaxed and stress-free atmosphere. Open to all students, faculty, and staff interested in the joy of mathematics. For more information, visit the math club webpage.
Pi Mu Epsilon
Mathematical honor society. Students must meet certain minimum requirements to qualify for membership. Qualifying students are contacted in the spring. For more information, visit the Idaho Alpha Chapter webpage.
Python for Data Science Club
Watch for information about upcoming meetings!
In the Python for Data Science Club, we focus on Python programming. At the club meetings, we go over tutorials of basic and advanced Python programming and explore applications of Python to data analysis.
Each year, members of the University of Idaho Putnam Team put their skills to the test at the annual William Lowell Putnam Competition, the premier undergraduate mathematics competition.
This club is currently on hiatus. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping organize this club.
Open to all students interested in statistics.
Zoom Watch Parties
In 2020, Dr. Somantika Datta organized several informal Zoom get-togethers where participants watched videos related to the amazing things that can be done with mathematics and how one uses mathematics in daily life. The Zoom Watch Parties were open to all and no mathematics knowledge was required. We hope to hold more of these Zoom get-togethers in the future. Go to this page to view some of the videos from our previous get-togethers.
