Who We Are

MAACM is the Math and Computer Science club here at Belmont University. We are made of chapters of the Mathematical Association of America and Association for Computing Machinery. Anyone is welcome to be a part of MAACM; it's not only for math and computer science majors and minors.

What We Do

Monthly Meetings – MAACM meets monthly to discuss upcoming events. There is usually a short, fun math or computer science presentation, and there is always food.

Game Day – This is one of MAACM's signature events. We take up four rooms in Hitch to set up cards, board games, food, PS3, Wii and more. It's always a great way to hang out with Belmont's finest students and teachers. Game Day is held once a semester on a Friday afternoon/evening.

MM&Ms – MAACM sponsors several math lectures and convos with snacks called Math Musings and Munchies. MM&Ms are often presented by teachers or senior students who have done some research or just know something neat that they would like to present.

Math/CS Competitions – Members of MAACM are invited to participate in team math and computer science competitions every year. There are usually several practice sessions offered to ready the teams for battle.

Community Service - Each semester MAACM participates in one group Community Service project. Participation is not mandatory, but is encouraged. Recent events have included various projects with Hands On Nashville in the fall and Family Literacy Day in the spring.
