The WIMACs group meets weekly and engages in a variety of activities including: volunteering to teach beginning programming concepts to area middle schoolers, hosting guest speakers on employment, internships, or research experiences, and learning about current trends in mathematics and computer science.
The Drake problem solving group meets weekly to learn and practice problem-solving techniques in a variety of problems. In addition to working on problems to prepare for the annual Putnam Exam and Iowa Math Competition, we also have worked on current research questions from the math and computer science faculty.
Are you interested in testing your programming skills against other computer science students? The Drake programming group sharpens their programming skills and then competes in the annual Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) programming contest. The group meets before the contest event at a professors home to practice the format of the programming contest.
The Math Tutoring Lab is staffed by Drake students. Students interested in this paid position complete a required Peer Tutoring in Mathematics course in the spring 2016. Tutors are not required to be Math or Math Education majors.
