Women in Math & Computer Science (WiMaCS) is committed to connecting Drake Students interested and/or majoring in Math and/or Computer Science or related fields. The meetings facilitate networking between members and faculty. Through volunteering, the group aims to share its passion with younger girls in STEM. WiMaCS hosts guest speakers related to employment, internships, and research experience. Meetings usually occur on Fridays before the Math & Computer Science Department research groups so members can attend with fellow Women in Math & 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.
The Math Tutoring Lab is staffed by Drake students. Students interested in this paid position complete a required Peer Tutoring in Mathematics course. Tutors are not required to be Math or Math Education majors.
