Students learning math concepts in a classroom.

CAMERON UNIVERSITY MATH SEMINAR SERIES (CUMSS)

CUMSS was founded in Fall 2013. The purpose of this seminar series is to have faculty share their scholarship and teaching with peers and the communities we serve. It is attended by mathematics faculty, undergraduates at all levels, as well as occasional external faculty and students. 

We meet every third Tuesday of the month at 03:30 P.M. in 212 Burch Hall during the Fall and Spring semesters. Refreshments are served at 03:20 P.M. at the same location. Talks by Cameron University faculty and outside faculty are generally in the ballpark of 45-55 minutes long, which leaves plenty of time for questions. The first 15-20 minutes of a talk should be accessible to freshmen students in their first year of calculus. If the entire talk can be made accessible to freshmen, that is much appreciated.

If you would like to speak, or have suggestions for a speaker that would give an engaging talk to our audience, please email Dr. Hong Li at lhong@cameron.edu, or call 580 581- 2551.
