Macomb’s new Math Club is as much about forming friendships as equations and was inspired by a professor whose teaching approach has made math accessible to even non math majors. “He brings it to our level,” says Arminda Scott (second from left), a nursing major who serves as the club’s secretary, of Jon Oaks, who the founding club members recruited as their advisor. Under the leadership of Phil Nguyen, president (second from right), and Andrew Konczal, vice president, (far left) engineering and secondary education majors, respectively, the club is also involved in community service projects, including tutoring elementary school students in math, holding a canned food drive for the needy and volunteering at Gleaners Food Bank. “There are always three or four students hanging around after class to talk with the professor, so (forming a club) made sense,” says Terrina Green, a psychology major (far right). “We’re like a little family.” The Math Club meets Mondays at 4 p.m. in G426, South Campus.
