Math Table is a colloquium jointly run by the Harvard Mathematics department and undergraduate students. The purpose of Math Table is to provide an opportunity for undergraduates to be exposed to interesting mathematical topics, as well as to gain experience in communicating and teaching mathematics.
Math Table meets roughly every other Wednesday at 5 PM in SC 507. Talks are given by current undergraduate students about their mathematical interests; there will also be guest speakers or panel discussions about mathematical jobs, graduate school, and other useful topics. Each event will also have a free dinner that you can sign up for. See the Math Table calendar for details; to sign up to give a talk or if you have questions, please email Phil Wood.
Who Can Attend/Give Talks?
All students, irrespective of their mathematical backgrounds, are strongly encouraged to attend and/or to give talks. Talks come in a wide array of topics, background levels, and styles. The Math Table organizers are here to help you pick topics and develop your talk, so even if you aren’t sure about what your topic is, you should come speak with us! The two best undergraduate talks at the colloquium each year will win the Rogers Prize.
