## UTC Mathematics Poster Competition

On Thursday 26 March 2015, the Mathematics Department of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga held its eighth annual Mathematics Poster Competition with the theme “Math: What is it good for?” Over 115 students from eight local middle- and high schools submitted 75 posters for consideration by the judges who represented several UTC academic departments; engineering, computer science, biology, physics, and mathematics.

We were extremely pleased with the quality of work submitted by students this year. Posters varied in perspectives from quality lawn care to solving complex equations, and almost everything in between. The event was sponsored by Land Rover, Jaguar, Porsche of Chattanooga.
