Virtual math seminar for UNC and NCSU undergraduates

Have you ever found yourself down a several-hour rabbit hole of watching math-related Youtube videos? Have you ever bugged your friends by talking way too much about a math topic you thought was neat? Do you like to eat pizza (or at least virtual pizza)? Then MathGems may just be the seminar series for you!
MathGems is a seminar series for undergraduates interested in neat math stuff. Each week, someone (you or one of your peers) gets to research a “mathematical gem”, prepare a talk, and then give a presentation about a unique or interesting math topic. Pizza is also provided at each meeting (at least it is whenever we meet in person).
MathGems is a great opportunity to learn about things not covered in the standard undergraduate math curriculum; it’s also a great opportunity to get practice giving presentations. If you’re interested or on the fence about grad school (in any field), participation in a seminar like this can help sway admissions committees in your favour. If you’re looking for a job after graduation, having practice preparing and giving (semi-)technical math talks is a great plus for your resume.
So whether you’d like to discover your own mathematical gem or just listen to others present on things that they find neat, we’d love to have you join us at MathGems!
