# Clubs and Events

### Association for Women in Mathematics

The goal of the NYU AWM Undergraduate Chapter is to create a supportive community for women who are interested in mathematics and to promote equal opportunities for women and others of marginalized genders and gender identities across the mathematical sciences.

### Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The NYU chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) was founded to be the center of student life and learning in Mathematics at NYU. NYU SIAM hopes to harness the Courant Institute’s position as the world’s leading applied math institution to expose students to the math department’s cutting edge research.

### NYU Math Society

The NYU Math Society strives to connect undergraduate math and related majors through social events, panels, and lectures. Regardless of whether you’re new to NYU or simply just curious about mathematics, you’re more than welcome to drop by one of our events.

### Undergraduate Math Modeling Workshop

The Undergraduate Math Modeling Workshop is an informal weekly seminar for NYU undergraduate students who are interested in learning more about mathematical modeling. It started out as preparation for students who are interested in participating in the annual Mathematical/Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (MCM/ICM), and it has evolved into a place where students can learn about mathematical modeling in an informal setting.

### Putnam Competition

The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition is the preeminent mathematics competition for undergraduate college students in the United States and Canada. The Putnam Competition takes place annually on the first Saturday of December. The competition consists of two 3-hour sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. During each session, participants work individually on six challenging mathematical problems.

Every Fall at Courant we offer optional problem sessions for our interested students to prepare for the competition. Please reach out to Prof. Selin Kalaycioglu at sk168@nyu.edu if you have any questions.
