Please join us for the induction of nine new members to Pi Mu Epsilon, an honor society for mathematics. In addition, we will be welcoming a guest speaker, Dr. Rachelle DeCoste from Wheaton College, who will be giving a talk entitled, `What is the Shape of Space?'.
How does an ant crawling on a surface know whether it lives on a sphere, a flat plane, a cylinder, or any other space? Similarly, how do we know what the shape of our universe is? In this talk we will explore various options for the shape of a space and determine (together!) how we might investigate our space to draw conclusions about its shape. Come prepared to think, draw and engage in mathematics.
The new inductees are:

Meier Hall, North Campus
