SUMMER 2017
8th Annual Pacific Summer Open Mathematics Seminar (PSOMS) Wrapup Miniconference Thursday, August 24 11:15am3pm Room 616 Supported by the FC Staff Development Committee See the Google Calendar for speakers and talk titles, which will be posted as soon as possible ROOM 616 & COMING IN FALL 2017 Joint Meeting of the Math Colloquium/Math Club/Math Seminars 290/290H/291/291H/295/295H THURSDAYS (note the new day) 4:306:35pm Room 616 These classes are an outstanding experience for STEM students, not just math majors, who are interested in improving their ability to handle mathematical professionalism and researchoriented work, so we hope that you will officially join one of the Seminars. However, if for any reason you cannot enroll, we still invite you to join us as an ad hoc participant and anyone is welcome to join us since the Colloquium is open to the public. Supplemental Seminars on special topics can be held as well, if there is sufficient interest. (These Math Seminars are designed to introduce students to and engage them in open/unsolved problems in mathematical science, while improving students' ability to read and write higherlevel mathematics proofs and which can be taken for 2 units of CSU/UC transferable credit, see below or contact Dr. Clahane at dclahane@fullcoll.edu for more details or for answers to questions you may have.) REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED for you to participate! Just show up! But registering is a good idea in order to boost your likelihood of success in the future and ensure that the activities are not eliminated by the Fullerton College Administration. The research, scientific typesetting, and presentation skills that you learn in these Seminars may make them the most useful classes you ever take.
Choose any of the following courses (they all meet at the same time, with the same instructor, same Room as above).
MATH 290 PURE MATH SEMINAR/MATH 290H HONORS PURE MATH SEMINAR
MATH 291 APPLIED MATH SEMINAR/MATH 291 HONORS APPLIED MATH SEMINAR
MATH 295 GENERAL MATH SEMINAR/MATH 295H HONORS GENERAL MATH SEMINAR

PREREQUISITE BLOCKING: If you get a "prerequisite error" when attempting to register for the any of these seminars on My Gateway/Webstar, see an Admissions Counselor if you took the equivalent of Math 40 but not at FC previously. Clearance will be granted automatically if you are enrolled in a higher math course at FC. If YOU ENCOUNTER ANY PROBLEMS REGISTERING, IMMEDIATELY CONTACT DR. CLAHANE so that he can assist you. Location and Parking: Fullerton College is located at 321 E. CHAPMAN, FULLERTON, CA 928322095. The North Science Building (600) is the building just east of the library.

INFORMAL LEARNING SEMINARS Fall 2017 34:15pm on Thursdays Room 61103/Math Lab Annex just outside of Dr. Clahane's office door  come on by (these seminars are the purpose of specialized topics and interaction between Dr. Clahane, interested students in mathematical research, and other faculty participants, though these Informal Seminars will be held if the main Seminar classes are cancelled by FC Administration) AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL ASSOCIATION OF TWOYEAR COLLEGES (AMATYC) STUDENT MATH COMPETITION
(Please see http://math.fullcoll.edu/amatyc.html for more information about upcoming practices and the Round 1 Fall Competition in late October or early November! Also, note that if the Math Seminar classes are not cancelled, Dr. Clahane will be holding periodic practice sessions for the exam during the Math Seminar classes Also, later in Fall 2017:
WILLIAM LOWELL PUTNAM MATHEMATICAL COMPETITION
First Saturday in December
8am4pm
Lunch 12pm provided by the Math & Computer Science Division  students should register in advance by emailing Dr. Clahane no later than October 10
(This is a sixhour, two part exam consisting of twelve challenging math problems that test student mastery of mathematical skills needed for success in higher level mathematics  the competition is held throughout the USA and Canada and is appropriate for students who have had or who are enrolled in calculus.
