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.

Most of us know the least-squares method in the context of fitting a regression line to data. However, least-squares can be used in a variety of other contexts. We recently looked at the possibility of using least-squares to obtain a solution to an old legal dispute. We will explore this interesting scenario, how it can be extended, and some further insight about least-squares.
