KME Math Club

Screen Shot 2018-11-03 at 4.20.13 PMJoining Kappa Mu Epsilon (CMU’s undergraduate math honor society) has been one of the best decisions I’ve made as a student. As a mathematics education major, I was involved in a teaching student organization for all future educators, however, I wanted to join an organization that would further my math knowledge as well.

I learned about KME through some friends in my Abstract Algebra class. They were looking to have more members join KME and I wanted to join a math organization so it was a perfect fit.

As KME members, we offer professional development by having professors come in and present workshops or talks. Additionally, we also do fun math game nights in the form of Jeopardy or Kahoot to sharpen up our math skills. One of my favorite parts of KME is the volunteer tutoring workshop we put on. The Math Assistance Center is always closed during the Friday before final exam week. As KME members, we volunteer our time during that day and put on a free tutoring workshop to help students with their last-minute math questions.

I’ve really loved being part of KME and I will definitely miss this organization when I graduate.

HST 110L WI: The American Experience

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 3.17.56 PM.pngBefore going into HST 110L WI, I heard many different opinions from upperclassmen about this course:

“Get ready to read 200 pages a week”
“She doesn’t like to give “A’s” very often so if you care about your GPA, Take it credit/no credit”
“Good luck..”

After hearing these comments, I was a little scared for this course.

Over the past 10 weeks, I’ve come to realize HST 110L WI hasĀ been one of the most challenging courses I’ve had to take this far. With 150+ pages of reading a week, multiple choice exams every other week, 5-8 page papers, and essay exams, let’s just say I became a frequent Starbucks customer.

Though this course has certainly been challenging, I have enjoyed getting to learn more about leadership in the government over the past couple hundred years. It has been intriguing to learn about renown leaders such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Teddy Roosevelt and how each of their leadership styles created different changes that affected America forever.

Though there are still 6 weeks left in HST 110L WI, I’m hoping that I will be able to further my understanding of influential leaders in American history.
