Math in the Woods

Math in the Woods, Whiteboard

Our Annual Math Retreat

At the beginning of each Fall Semester, our Department has its Math in the Woods! Our Fall 2013 event was held at Lake Wissota State Park.

A main goal of the event is to build community. Not only are students and faculty invited but also emeritus faculty, staff members and all friends and family. The activities include lawn games like frisbee and bean bag toss, hikes in the woods, student/professor math mingling on research topics, a grill out, math talks, and an overnight campout. This year a great time was had by everyone. 

Two portable white boards were full of math by the end of Sunday evening! Next year we are bringing four!
