What is SUMO?
SUMO is the Stanford University Mathematical Organization. We are the by-students-for-students math club on campus. We host various events that are open to everyone: math majors and non-math majors, graduate and undergraduate.
What events does SUMO run?
Stanford Math Tournament
Saturday, February 15, 2014
This is a competition we write and run every winter for hundreds of local high-school students as well as a number of teams from across the country and even across the world.
Colloquium / Speaker Series
4:15 to 5:05 PM each Thursday in 380-380C
This is a weekly talk given by a professor, grad student, or visitor about undergraduate-accessible topics in pure and applied mathematics that go beyond the standard curriculum.
6:00 to 10:00 PM each Monday and Wednesday in 380-381T
We run twice-weekly tutoring sessions for students in the MATH 51/52/53 course series.
5:00 to 6:00 PM some Tuesdays in 380-380X
This is an occasional informal talk or discussion led by an undergraduate or graduate student about any math-related topic of their choosing. You are welcome not only to attend, but also to sign up to give a talk yourself!
American Regions Math League
Spring 2013-14 (more information coming soon)
Each year, the Bay Area sends several extremely strong teams to ARML, a prestigious, national math contest for high schoolers. SUMO members coach these teams and accompany them to the competition each spring.
7:00 to 10:00 PM each Tuesday in 380-381U
This is an unstructured weekly event for math students to meet other students from their classes and work on homework. Food is provided.
4:00 to 6:00 PM each Friday in 380-381U
This is a fun weekly social event where students interested in math can socialize over interesting mathematical ideas and free food in a laid-back atmosphere.
