At Denison, you will initially continue your high school Calculus education, but you will quickly be exposed to some of the more fascinating questions that really excite mathematicians. Mathematics is the study of abstraction. Mathematicians search for similar patterns in seemingly different settings and then strive to communicate those patterns precisely. Mathematics is a creative process, not a mechanical one.
Pi Mu Epsilon, a national honorary mathematics society, was founded in 1914 at Syracuse University. Its roots date back to a mathematics club that was founded at Syracuse in 1903. The purpose of Pi Mu Epsilon is the promotion of scholarly activity in mathematics among students in academic institutions.
Denison's chapter was chartered in 1963.
