Mathematics – Student Opportunities

Women have been historically underrepresented in the mathematical sciences, and we want to help change that. Annually, the Rose‑Hulman Department of Mathematics and the RHIT Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) student chapter sponsor the Sonia Math Day for Girls event.

If you are a high school girl with an interest in mathematics, this event is for you!

Each year, Rose professors and math majors invite high school girls to campus to participate in engaging and interactive sessions, which pay tribute to Sonia Kovalevsky – a pioneer for female mathematicians. 

The free event is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics and the Rose-Hulman Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).

Sonia Math Day 2022 Information

This year’s Sonia Math Day event will be held on Saturday, February 19. Given the rapidly changing COVID situation, the event format (either on Rose-Hulman’s campus or virtual) will not be finalized until early February.

Registration for the 2022 Sonia Math Day

While we know several of the planned activities are more fun in person, we want to keep everyone’s health and safety a top priority. The event format will finalize the precise schedule and time (tentatively 10 a.m.-3 p.m.). If the event occurs at Rose-Hulman, face masks must be worn properly at all times (other than lunch, at which time social distancing will be enforced). View our Rose Ready document to view the latest campus safety guidelines.
