Pi Mu Epsilon

PI MU EPSILON

In 1989 the Alpha Delta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon was established at Geneseo. Each year we induct our best students into this prestigious national honor society.

It was founded on May 25, 1914 at Syracuse University. The purpose of Pi Mu Epsilon is the promotion of scholarly activity in mathematics among the students in academic institutions and among staffs of qualified non-academic institutions.

Each spring, the Pi Mu Epsilon coordinator reviews the transcripts of current mathematics majors with sophomore standing, or above. Candidates must meet both internal standards of excellence and the nationally set criteria to be inducted.

Our Standards:

1. Sophomores: Completed Math 221, Math 222, Math 223, Math 233, Math 239, and at least 6 credits of 300-level math courses with all A's or at most one A-.

2. Juniors: Completed at least 9 credits of 300-level math courses with minimum Math GPA of 3.70.

3. Seniors: Completed at least 12 credits of 300-level math courses with minimum 300-level Math GPA of 3.60.

4. All students must major in Mathematics and maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0. Furthermore, eligible students must have contributed positively to the Mathematics community above and beyond the minimal degree requirements. Examples of contributions include directed studies, research, working in the Math Learning Center, attending math conferences or REUs, actively participating in PRISM, math colloquia, or other Math Department events, etc.

 

An induction ceremony, talk and reception are held for inductees, members and their families each spring.

Pi Mu Epsilon Putnam Prize:

To promote scholarly work in mathematics among our students, the Alpha Delta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon is offering a prize for our top scoring students on the annual William Lowell Putnam mathematics competition in the fall and the University of Rochester Math Olympiad in the spring. A list of recent award recipients can be found here.

First Place PME Putnam Prize: $75 award to the top scoring SUNY Geneseo student on the annual William Lowell Putnam mathematics competition. To be eligible the individual must receive a positive score. If no student is eligible, the award may be given for top performance in a later mathematics competition (usually the Rochester Mathematics Olympiad).  In the event of a tie for first place, then those students will split the total first-second place prize amount of $125.

Second Place PME Putnam Prize: $50 to the second highest scoring SUNY Geneseo student on the annual William Lowell Putnam mathematics competition. To be eligible the individual must receive a positive score. If no student is eligible, the first place award will be upgraded to $125. In the event of a tie for second place, then those students will split the total second place prize amount of $50.

First Place PME Rochester Olympiad Prize: $50 award to the top scoring SUNY Geneseo student on the annual University of Rochester Math Olympiad. To be eligible the individual must receive a positive score. If no student is eligible, the award may be given for top performance in a later mathematics competition.  In the event of a tie for first place, then those students will split the total first-second place prize amount of $75.
