The MLC believes that students and staff should not just learn and use maths, but also enjoy it. So we engage in a lot of mathematical art and play.
To find out more about any of these activities, please contact us.
One Hundred Factorial is a gathering of staff, students and friends to solve puzzles together, both online and face-to-face. We have face-to-face puzzle sessions on campus weekly during teaching weeks, and monthly at other times. We also have an online community where we discuss puzzles and the associated maths, and where we inform members about the face-to-face sessions . For more information, go to the One Hundred Factorial online community.
AUMS (Adelaide University Maths Students) is a student club for students studying maths. AUMS holds barbecues several times per semester, and the MLC provides games at these barbecues. If you see us out on the Barr-Smith Lawns one day, come and join in!
