What we're about

Welcome to the Fullerton Squares, the unofficial California State University Fullerton Math Meetup!

We are an on-campus gathering for math interested people. While I myself and an undergraduate math student, everyone is welcome to the group, including those who are not enrolled at CSUF.

Our purpose is pretty simple: to become better mathematicians. How do we do this? By meeting with our peers and keeping the mathematical discussion alive outside the classroom. Think of it as a cross between Supplemental Instruction and an evening playing Pub Trivia with your friends.

So, regardless of whether you're interested in just passing your math requirements, or want to set the school record on the Putnam (According to Dr. Annin, it's 39/120), you're going to feel at home with a group of people who like math and know how to have a good time!

We'll be holding meetings at the California State University Fullerton Pollack Library on Fridays at noon. As our group grows, we can make different accommodations for meeting spaces that include whiteboards. While we are currently unable to provide refreshments, if you bring a thermos we can go to Aloha Java together for $1 fill-ups (don't forget to tip your barista).

Look forward to meeting all of you, and growing together as mathematicians.

Finally, we will be using Slack to communicate in between meetings, so please take a second to join my Slack channel, http://fantasticawesome.slack.com . It's a general workspace for California State University Fullerton students, but I will be creating a specific chat room for our members.

If you don't know what Slack is, here is quick lowdown about why we're using it and how to get started (It's straightforward).

Slack is a free chatroom and filesharing app that you can use on your phone, on your computer, or in a browser. It's much more convenient than email, and it's more useful than texting.

1) If you are a CSUF student, you can click on this link fantasticawesome.slack.com (http://fantasticawesome.slack.com/) and sign in using your @csu.fullerton.edu email address.

2) If you are NOT a CSUF student, I think you can click the link and request to join, and I will let you in. If not, please message me your email (using Meetup), and I will send you an invitation.

Be sure to check out the apps for desktop/mobile (so you don't have to keep signing back in), and the rest is pretty self-explanatory.

CSUF Mathematics Meetup

California State University, Fullerton

Square-Ups are our general meetings open to everybody. Our groups are peer-led, Socratic style learning sessions, meaning we will be asking each other questions and trying to answer them. We meet on the 4th floor of the Pollack Library at California State University Fullerton. There are group study rooms available on a first-come-first-serve basis, so reach out on Slack (fantasticawesome.slack.com) to find which particular room we are meeting in. Make sure to bring your favorite math supplies: writing utensils, calculators, and laptops, as well as homework, problem sets, and notes/books. I also highly recommend procuring some refillable dry-erase markers. They help reduce single-use plastic waste and make you look cool. They are available on Amazon.com for less than $10 (I have the ones by mobee art and think they're great). Food in the library is generally a no-no, so please be sure to consider eating beforehand or packing low-key, non-messy snacks to enjoy. Typically, drinking from spill-safe containers probably won't get us in trouble.
