Math Club

Hello Everyone! My name is Mike Robinson and I am the president of Math Club here at Penn State Altoona. Welcome to our virtual home! Our mission includes:

  • Bringing students from all majors and disciplines interested in Mathematics together.
  • Providing the opportunity for faculty & professionals in mathematics related fields to share with interested students their experiences, research, and a wide range of real-world applications of mathematics.
  • Informing students of career and educational opportunities in mathematics.
Being a part of Math Club provides an excellent way for students to network with the Math faculty and fellow students outside of the classroom in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Our activities include:
  • Math talks by faculty members,
  • bowling nights, game nights, mathematically based contests, and other events.
Student Leadership: For more information please contact me (mqr5225 "at" psu.edu)

Faculty Coordinator: Dr. David Hurtubise.

K12 Outreach

It is the desire of the Mathematics Faculty at Penn State Altoona to promote mathematics in general and also heighten awareness of the opportunities. To forward that goal we have designed:
