UTC Mathematics Poster Competition

UTC Mathematics Poster Competition

On Monday, March 5, 2018, the Department of Mathematics of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga held its tenth annual Mathematics Poster Competition with the theme "Historical Mathematics." Over 135 students from eight local middle- and high schools submitted 91 posters for consideration by the judges who represented several UTC academic departments; electrical engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and mathematics. While the judging part of the competition took place, students and teachers joined in a campus tour.

We were extremely pleased with the quality of work submitted by students this year. Thanks to all the teachers who worked with their students and made the extra efforts to bring their students to the competition. 

The following prizes were awarded.
