Math dog Harmony, working remotely, sends comfort to all of our students.
We are happy to announce the winners of this year’s Thayer Prize Exam, a contest organized by our department each year. Pictured clockwise from top left: Finn Hulse, Sicong (George) Shan, and Brandon Chen. George and Finn share a two-way tie for first place, with Brandon winning second place. View winners from the last 10 years along with a brief history of the prizes, established in 1869 to “to constitute a perpetual prize fund for superior proficiency in the higher branches of Mathematics.”
We are pleased to share the team projects from Math 70, Elements of Multivariate Statistics and Statistical Learning, taught by Professor Eugene Demidenko this spring. Data scientists are among the most in-demand technical jobs, and Dartmouth offers a Mathematical Data Science major with Math 70 as the culminating course. The course combines theoretical mathematics empowered by proficient programming in R for solving real-life problems, such as the analysis of COVID-19 dynamics and its prediction, and prepares students for a career in data analysis and statistical problem solutions. View the three team projects in full PDF form.
This year we are hosting Math Camp virtually, offering two summer enrichment sessions for local high school students. Topics covered will be outside of the usual high school syllabus and students can interact with mathematicians in a fun, non-graded environment. This year’s sessions are Cryptography: from permutation ciphers to RSA, and Theory of Graphs (networks): from Königsberg bridges to the Six Color Theorem and beyond. Students are invited to attend one or both sessions. View more info and registration link.
