Professor Marc Chamberland offers a humorous take on everything you need to know about this irrational number.
Over winter break, several members of the department attended the Joint Mathematics Meeting in Baltimore, the largest annual gathering of mathematicians and statisticians in the world. Chris Hellmann ('16) and Brennan Langenbach ('16) presented a poster entitled "Symplectic Transformations as R-Lagrangian Subspaces" based on MAP research from the previous summer. David Brown ('14) also presented a poster entitled "Enumeration and Projection Dependence of 1-Singular Knots" from his summer research at James Madison University.
Sixteen Grinnell students celebrate women in computing with attendees from 53 countries at Grace Hopper 2013.
We are living in a Golden Age for astronomy, and Grinnell College offers its students a range of opportunities to experience the excitement of direct involvement in astronomical observation and investigation. The unusually sophisticated instrumentation at Grinnell's observatory supports activities ranging from casual visual observing to active astronomical research and allows students to do projects that are connected to topics of current interest, such as the expansion of the universe and the behavior of pulsars.
A Thanksgiving Day trip around the sun will determine whether the comet survives for post-feast viewing.
Professor Marc Chamberland’s art merges math lessons with aesthetics, history, and pop culture.
The observatory open house features a globular cluster and the Ring Nebula this Saturday, Nov. 2.
The Grinnell Science Project is committed to developing the talents of all students interested in science and mathematics, especially those from groups underrepresented in the sciences -- students of color, first-generation college students, and women in physics, mathematics and computer science.
