Dominican offers several clubs and other activities designed to foster students’ interest in mathematics beyond the classroom.

Math Club

Dominican's Math Club aims to build a network of students and faculty in which mathematics may be practiced, discussed and taught in a way that is accessible to students at all levels. Members grow in mathematics beyond the classroom by pursuing activities designed to promote mathematical and scholarly development. Most of all, Math Club provides a community where everyone can enjoy math for its beauty as well as its application.

Recent Math Club activities have included:

  • Pi Day, when club members celebrate March 14 by providing free pie to the Dominican community
  • The ACCA Calculus Competition, in which teams of up to three people vie for the top score on a 90-minute exam
  • A friendly, interactive competition held during Dominican’s International Week called Who Wants to Be a Mathematician?
  • A demonstration by Professor Paul Coe on how to make origami polyhedra
Honor Society

Dominican is proud to host a chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, the national mathematics honor society. The Zeta Chapter has been part of Dominican’s campus life since 1967.

Kappa Mu Epsilon chapters are housed in colleges and universities of recognized standing that offer a strong mathematics major. Membership is open to students majoring in mathematics, or double majoring in mathematics and another field, who:

  • Have completed at least three semesters of college study;
  • Rank in the upper 35 percent of their class;
  • Have completed at least three college courses in mathematics, including at least one semester of calculus; and
  • Have attained an average of B or better in all mathematics courses.

Transfer students are eligible for membership once they have completed at least one semester at Dominican, including the completion of at least one mathematics course with a B or better prior to induction.

New members are inducted each spring.
