Hi all, we hope you are holding up okay at home. Due to the circumstances, we’ve decided to postpone elections for the 2020-2021 Math Union Executive until the start of the new academic year. In the meantime, for the summer term and until the elections are run, we’re appointing an Interim Executive. Your two Interim Executives are Curtis Grant and Martin Shoosterman.
If you have questions or concerns, feel free to email us at email@example.com. Stay strong and healthy everyone!
Hi all, due to current events, we will be cancelling our events for the remainder of the semester. This tentatively includes elections for the Math Union executive for 2020-2021; we are waiting for word from the Arts & Science Student Union to give final word on how we will proceed with elections.
If you have questions or concerns, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay safe!
We’ll have a Math Union talk next week on Tuesday, March 10 at 6:10pm in BA 6183. Prof. Micheal Pawliuk will be speaking about the history of functions! As always, there will be food.
Title: A History of Functions
Abstract: What is a function? Our current definition is surprisingly recent, and it figuring it out was a result of important questions in mathematics and physics. Updating our definition resulted in having to “redo” a bunch of seemingly solved mathematics.
We’ll trace the history of functions from the mid 1800s forward to the birth of topology.
