Pi Mu Epsilon
The Arkansas Beta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon was chartered in 1976
at Hendrix College and mantains an active schedule of social and
academic events relating to mathematics.
|Officers for 2014–15|
The department has a very long tradition of taking groups of
students to mathematical conferences. The most regular is the
Symposium (HRS), which
occurs each spring involving students from Hendrix College,
Rhodes College, and Sewanee (University of the South).
We host HRS at Hendrix once every four years, and we take
students to Rhodes or Sewanee.
We run a problem solving seminar that meets on alternate Wednesday
afternoons to discuss how to solve challenging mathematical
problems, of the sort that are found in the Putnam Mathematical
The Putnam Mathematical Competition is a very rigorous
national mathematics exam held annually, and Hendrix acts as a
site for the exam each fall.
Our students also participate in
the Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest
and the team-based Arkansas Undergraduate Mathematics Competition.
Our students regularly place at the top of the Oklahoma-Arkansas
region [Records], and a Hendrix team
has won the Arkansas contest for every year from 2006 to 2012.
