Have you ever suffered the indignity of being asked by someone to perform arithmetic in your head because as a mathematician, that is your expertise? It is the goal of the Mathematics Students Society of the University of Queensland to instigate a public consciousness raising. Let it be known that if you want someone to add a bunch of numbers together then you should go see an accountant. If you want to engage in procrastination or witty banter then to a mathematician you should proceed posthaste.
Any maths honours, masters or PhD students as well as anyone currently enrolled in a 2nd year (other than MATH2000 or MATH2010), 3rd year or 4th year maths course is already a member of the MSS. That means you're welcome to get involved in any of our events, but you won't necessarily find out about them unless you are on the mailing list.
