PRISM, or Pursuing Rewards In the Study of Mathematics, recognizes and supports interest and achievement in mathematics. PRISM also encourages academic and social interaction between students and faculty. We attempt to have meetings, discussions, or events every two weeks.
Here is just a little bit of what we do: We have movie nights, game nights, Math Jeopardy, Math Price-Is-Right, REU/Graduate school discussions, design and sell math shirts, help run 'Math Day' workshops, and take field trips to Naples or Letchworth.
T-Shirts: Every Spring semester PRISM designs a T-shirt. As always anyone can submit their own t-shirt design into PRISM. We will have a vote to decide which design will be used. Look and listen for announcements to announce when the shirts go on sale!
Sweat Shirts: Every Fall semester PRISM places an order for hoodies with the words “Math Department” on the front and sometimes there is a design on the back. Again, look and listen for announcements to announce when the shirts go on sale!
Thanksgiving Pi Celebration: We never miss our chance to eat pie. So every fall PRISM hosts a Thanksgiving Pi Celebration! There are different Pi activities and many pies to go around!
Pi Day Celebration: The official Pi Day (3.14) usually occurs during our Spring Break, but that is no reason to not celebrate it and use it as an excuse to eat more pie! Every spring PRISM hosts a Pi Day Celebration the week before Spring Break. Again, there are lots of Pi activities and of course... lots and lots of pie!
