# Special Events

The UTC Department of Mathematics hosts a number of special events each year for students, faculty and staff and the general public. Since 1999, the department has sponsored the Department of Mathematics Colloquium Series. This series provides both UTC mathematics faculty as well as guest speakers the opportunity to highlight their most recent research in the field of mathematics. The colloquium series is open to anyone with an interest in mathematics.

Each spring, to coincide with National Math Awareness Month, the department hosts two separate events. The first, our Department Honor's Day Reception and Awards Ceremony, honors the scholastic achievement of our students during the academic year and inducts new members into the UTC chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, the mathematics honor society. The department also hosts a poster contest for area middle and high school students which enables them to explore the area of mathematics.

Other special events occur through the year as well. Pi Mu Epsilon sponsors a mathematics movie night each semester as well as a yearly sudoku tournament. Periodically, conferences and guest speakers will be scheduled. Be sure to check the list of upcoming events to see what new and interesting things are going on in the math department.
