Temple Math Club is an active club within Temple University, which organizes weekly events on Thursdays 5:00 PM to 6 PM. The meeting room is Wachman Hall 617. Any undergraduate, graduate, faculty, or staff member may attend these meetings and collaborations with other organizations are always welcome!
The mission of the Math Club at Temple University is to build a scholarly community of students and faculty with a passion for mathematics and to popularize this field through a series of activities promoting appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human culture. To join or enjoy the Math Club one does not need to be the next Euler or Archimedes; one must simply have the interest and ability to find the fun in logic.
We invite speakers (undergraduates, graduates, and faculty) from the University and surrounding institutions to present on various mathematics and applied science fields with the hope to inspire our math, science, engineering majors and all other math enthusiasts. We also offer professional development opportunities within the field of mathematics. We organize events outside of campus, such as watching Math/Science movies, and with other organizations.

The first meeting of the Temple Math Club this semester will consist, as usual, of math puzzles and games. And of course there will be free pizza!
The meeting will be on Thursday from 5 pm – 6 pm in Wachman 617.
At this week’s meeting of the Temple Math Club, I’ll be giving an introduction to Python. I’ll introduce the basic syntax and use some previous Weekly Challenge coding problems as examples. If you’d like to program along, I’d recommend installing Python 3 (at https://www.python.org/) ahead of time. I’d also recommend installing an IDE (I’m a fan of PyCharm, which is freely available: https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/). And, of course, there will be free pizza!
The talk will be on Thursday from 5 pm – 6 pm in Wachman 617.
This meeting of the Math Club will feature an information session about how undergraduates can get involved in research in the math department. Any student interested in research but not sure how to get started should consider attending. And, of course, there will be free pizza!
The meeting will be tomorrow from 5 pm – 6 pm in Wachman 617.
This week’s meeting of the Temple Math Club will feature employees from the Advanced Concepts Lab about their work and the relevant mathematical topics (cryptography, statistics, discrete math, and more). This will be a good meeting to attend for any students interested to see the uses of math in industry. And, of course, there will be free pizza!
Need a break from studying for midterms? Join us for a Math Club game night! We will have several math-related board games to choose from, but feel free to bring your favorite game. As always, there will be free pizza!
This week we'll have a brief introduction to LaTeX, the typesetting language that most math and science books/papers are published in. It is a useful skill to have as math/science major, so this will be a great opportunity to get started if you haven't already. If you'd like to TeX along with the TalK, I would recommend making an account (for free!) over at Overleaf.com. As always, there will be free pizza!
This week we will watch the documentary “Outlier: The Story of Katherine Johnson”. The short film follows the story of Katherine Johnson, an African American woman who pushed boundaries in mathematics and made crucial contributions to space travel. As always, there will be free pizza!
Math puzzles are back! Join us to solve some fun problems, socialize, and enjoy free pizza! This time, there is a twist. Anyone who can solve a problem on the board will receive a (possibly sweet) prize!
In this talk, we investigate an integral bound lemma used to prove decay rates for solutions to the Navier-Stokes partial differential equation system with rough data. The Navier-Stokes system is a 3D momentum equation which governs the movement of viscous incompressible fluids. After some introduction to the system, and giving some important results and properties, we will dive into proving a necessary integral bound, utilizing only basic calculus. This proof should be accessible to any who are interested in attending. We will then discuss how this lemma is central to the decay rates proof and an interesting result on uniqueness for the system.
