University Math Society is the undergraduate mathematics organization at the University of Florida. Our club’s purpose is to foster a community of undergraduate mathematicians and to collectively participate in mathematics and career-building activities. We host a series of events including talks, workshops, social events, and competitions each year. If you’d like to learn more about our club, we invite you to read more what we do below, check out our upcoming events and/or contact an officer about getting involved.
What We Do
Workshops, Panels, & More
As a professional club, we believe it’s vital that many of our club activities expose students to active areas of math today and develop skills necessary for a career as a mathematician. That’s why, each year, we host over a dozen panels, workshops, and mathematics talks for undergraduate math majors. Take a look at our past events to learn more.
We believe building a community among fellow math majors is just as important as building individual skills, so we host many social events throughout the semester.
Each year, we organize an Integration Bee for undergraduate mathematicians to show off their integral-calculating skills. Cash prizes are awarded. Click here for more details on the 2020 Integration Bee.
Every Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m., UMS schedules a room in Marston to get together for a joint study session. Often times speaking and working together with others is one of the best ways to reinforce knowledge, and so the goal of study groups is to give students the opportunity to engage with students who are learning the same things or have insight to share. Check the Events page for the current list of reserved rooms.
MMATHS High School Competition
Also each year, UMS coordinates with the Math Majors of America Tournament for High Schools (MMATHS) to host a national team-based high-school math competition at the University of Florida. As a club, we work with other schools including Yale, Columbia, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and University of Virginia to come up with challenging test questions and otherwise prepare the site for the day of the competition.
