Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences
Welcome to the MSU Denver Mathematics Club!
What we do:
The Mathematics Club is always looking for new and exciting activities. Currently we have monthly talks on various subjects in Mathematics, given by local professionals, professors and students. These talks include pizza, snacks, free books, and good conversation, and are held the first Friday of the month at 2:30 pm in Science 1011, unless otherwise noted.
How do I join?
If you hear about a math club event, just drop by and join the group!

The MSU Denver MATH CLUB presents
Examples of Equivalence Relations with a Focus on Geometry
DR. KENNETH PREVOT
Friday, November 1, 2019
2:30 PM in Science 1011
Join Us for Pizza, Soda, and a Good Talk!
Free Books for All Students and Faculty!
(Many thanks to Louis Krupp for donating books to our math club!)
This presentation will review the notion of equivalence relations on sets and provide some examples of what the resulting collection of equivalence classes appear as, with a focus on geometry (and some topology).
Info about Kenneth Prevot:
