MAA/ACM Joint Student Chapter

The Belmont University mathematics and computer science club is a joint Student Chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The MAA and ACM are two of the most prominent professional organizations in mathematics and computer science, respectively.aiclass

Our MAA/ACM chapter meets regularly throughout the semester. Each meeting has time for snacks, announcements, and discussion. Sometimes we play a game, other times we have a mini-lecture by a student or professor, but we always have fun! MAA/ACM also sponsors a very popular Game Day each semester at which faculty and students come together to play board games, card games, and video games.

Finally, MAA/ACM performs community service, such as tutoring or helping out with Belmont's Family Literacy Day, each year.

MAA/ACM Club helps out at HANDS ON NASHVILLE Event
A group of students and faculty representing the Belmont University Student Chapter of the Mathematical Association of America and Association for Computing Machinery (MAA/ACM) participated in the Hands on Nashville work day event on September 20, 2014.  The group of volunteers worked at Glen Leven Farms in Nashville for a morning of weeding the pumpkin patch. Glen Leven Farm is a working 65-acre farm just four miles from downtown Nashville.  The Land Trust for Tennessee now owns this farm and they host workshops, group tours and school field trips.

The MAA/ACM Club participants, as shown in the photo above, were: Savannah Halliday, Marlee Stevenson, Haley Daniels, Geoff Gross, Dr. Maria Neophytou, Jackson Streeter, Michael Kranzlein, and Ben Stringer. This is the sixth consecutive year that MAA/ACM has participated in HON Day.

Hands On Nashville Day is the area's largest day of service benefiting Metro Nashville Public Schools. This was the 23rd year for the event and there were more than 2,100 volunteers participating.

Dr. Danny Biles, Professor of Mathematics, and five of Belmont’s actuarial program students attended the 2014 annual fall meeting of the Casualty Actuaries of the Southeast at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia on September 22, 2014. The students gained knowledge of current issues in the actuarial profession and made contacts with several practicing actuaries.The Belmont students attending were Annie Brunelle, Stephen Sells, Savannah Halliday, Elly Fell and Katie Kruzan. The Belmont students are Mathematics majors completing the Actuarial Track, which includes a business minor, and are members of the Belmont Actuarial Student Society.

MAA/ACM students participate in Family Literacy Day at Rose Park

A group of students from the Belmont MAA/ACM student organization participated in Belmont's 14th Annual Family Literacy Day event on April 12th. Family Literacy Day is an event that is aimed at children from pre-K through Grade 6 and their families and is designed to celebrate the joys of reading. The MAA/ACM group was part of the set-up crew, including setting up the mural shown in the photo. They also picked up trash and blew-up balloons for the children.
