Math Club

Gonzaga's Mathematics Department is reimagining the Math Club for the 2021-2011 academic year. We also host training sessions for the annual Putnam Competition. Gonzaga is also a proud member of Pi Mu Epsilon and schedules talks and activities for members of our local chapter, Washington Epsilon.

Past Math Club Meetings

  • RITHMOMACHIA RELOADED with Gonzaga Student Morgan McCurdy and Dr. Tomás Guardia

    Rithmomachia Board Game
    • The history of board games is fascinating. Old games were lost in time. However, something is coming back from the ashes of time. In the March Math Club Morgan and Tomás will rock the evening with Rithmomachia. A medieval math board game that will bring the Math Department to the Middle Ages.

      Based on Greek Number Theory and the work of Boethius and Nichomachus, Rithmomachia is a game for training skills in elementary arithmetic, proportion, and music tuning. It looks like Chess but is not Chess. It is the battle of numbers.
    • As always, we’ll supply pizza and some drinks!

Join the Club!

Pi Mu Epsilon / Washington Epsilon

"Pi Mu Epsilon is a non-secret honor society whose purpose is the promotion and recognition of scholarly activity in the mathematical sciences among students at the academic institutions that have been chartered as Chapters of the Society. Pi Mu Epsilon accomplishes its goals by promoting and recognizing scholarly activity among students through active, vibrant Chapters that:

  1. Elect Members on an honorary basis according to their proficiency in mathematics;
  2. Engage in activities designed to promote the mathematical and scholarly development of its Members; and
  3. Take other measures designed to further the purposes of the Society."

Meetings are organized by these faculty coordinators. Please contact them for information on becoming eligible for this honor society.
