Math Conference

Math Conference

Posted: Updated:

While a party was taking place outside at MSU today, a group of students spent their day inside doing math equations for five hours, and they wouldn't have it any other way.

But this morning, for the first time ever, Model Hall was filled with Minot State undergraduates with a drive to learn more about the subject.

The class contained about 20 students with majors or concentrations in mathematics.

Drilling math into students heads isn't the goal of the class, but to teach them how to use it in the real world and why it's important.

The professor who began the class says that having the conference at a smaller university gives students a better learning opportunity.

(Narayan Thapa, MSU Math Professor) "We have very talented students. Very talented. We may not have a large number, but we have very few, very talented. So our goal is, we want to send some sort of impression that you get the attention you may not get at a bigger school."
