The purpose of the seminar is to cover interesting or advanced topics in mathematics. Students may present talks about their research or an internship or tutorial experience. The seminar helps students learn how to research literature and use databases to explore topics as diverse as the mathematics of Sudoku to the Google Matrix and more.
Community Service — Each spring our students offer a free Math Clinic at Sarasota’s downtown Selby Public Library. Tutoring is available to all ages on the second level of the library at 1331 First Street, Sarasota, Florida. Students offer free math lessons and advice to people of all ages in Sarasota and Manatee counties to help them sharpen their math skills. The program is particularly popular among area middle school and high school students who need help with algebra, geometry and calculus. The Math Clinic was created by New College Professor of Mathematics Eirini Poimenidou in the late 1990s. The clinic is open to anyone with math-related questions, seeking to overcome a math phobia, looking to return to school but in need of a math refresher, or interested in discussing mathematical topics with fellow enthusiasts.
Since 2007, New College has been working with Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI).
