Math Day Results and Exams
Math Day 2017
Math Day 2017 included a math competition intended for students at any level of high school math knowledge and various math related activities. Two different exams were given, broken down by current class year. More than a dozen high schools from West Kentucky brought students to participate in the event.
The math-related activities included:
• The inaugural event for the Jesse D. Jones Lecture Series: a student/alumni panel entitled "Got Problems? Mathematicians Can Solve Them!". During the panel high schools students will be able to ask current Murray State undergraduates, graduate students and alumni questions about pursuing a career in mathematics.
• Screening of the Oscar-nominated movie Hidden Figures.
