This one goes out to everyone studying related rates problems this weekend for Dr. Kujawa’s and Dr. Martin’s Calc I classes:
Dr. Lifschitz passed along this job opportunity here in Norman. If you’re interested, give Mr. Damiani a call to learn more.
My name is Joseph Damiani and I work for TeachPro Tutoring and I was given your number by Carly Shaw who is one of our tutors. We are hoping you know of someone that is a Math major that could tutor in upper level Math. Our particular focus would be in Algebra I and II and possibly Geometry. If you have anyone that is looking for a part time job in tutoring in Norman please send them my way at 330.6299 ext. 113 or my cell at 657.0008. Thanks.

Not to be meta, but this is our 500th blog post.
Now back to your regularly scheduled program.
Better late than never, we wanted to tell you that the winner of the March Problem of the Month was Laurence White. Congratulate him when you see him!
Don’t tell Laurence or Dr. White, but people named White are always trouble :
Maybe things would have gone better if Joe was a mathematician and/or listened to Mr. White:
Joe: He was the only one I wasn’t 100% on. I should have my f****** head examined, going on a plan like this when I wasn’t 100%.
Mr. White: [shouting] That’s your proof?
Joe: You don’t need proof when you have instinct.
Dr. Martin let us know of a late breaking summer research experience. Purdue University will be hosting an REU this summer called PRiME (Purdue* Research in Mathematics Experience). It will be a group of 6-8 students lead by Dr. Edray Goins. The group will work on problems in number theory. For all the details, you can go to the PRiME website. The main thing to know is that the application deadline is
this Friday, April 26th!
* It’s a good thing it’s not at Clemson, Georgia, Kansas!
If you didn’t know, is the national math honor society for high schools and two year colleges. And their national headquarters is on the 11th floor of PHSC!
Spring is their busy time of year (graduating seniors and award ceremonies and whatnot), and they are looking for people who interested in working part time.
Kay Weiss, the executive director, would like to hire several people who are available between now and the end of June. She tells us the work is flexible in both hours and dates and any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated!
If you’re interested, you should either contact Ms. Weiss at (their contact info is on their website) or stop by their office at PHSC 1102.
End of the year Math Club Party! Congratulate our departing seniors! Share your summer plans with your friends! Participate in fun math games and partake in pizza and cake!
Wednesday, April 24th at 5 pm in PHSC 1105!
As always, Free Pizza! + Free Cake!
The Grand Poobah of the Problem of the Month has unleashed a new Problem. You can read the problem (and the rules) at the Problem of the Month webpage. It’s all about finding a certain bounded function.
If you can’t get enough of math pun comics, you’ve got to check out this webpage!
If you look closely, you’ll see shoutout’s to Blog favorites like the Euler Characteristic, Euler’s Formula, and the Königsberg Bridges Problem (which was when Euler simultaneously invented topology and graph theory!).
