Recent Cornell grad, Shruthi Sridhar, a math major, explains, *"I have found a community like no other in the Cornell math department. Given the small class sizes, I've also gotten to know my professors well. They've been sources of inspiration as well as people to go to for advice. I've also met some of my closest friends by working on problem sets or talking about math. This community has been crucial to my education at Cornell."*

Every Wednesday night, students gather in the math lounge of Malott Hall and spend 2.5 hours huddled around chalkboards and poring over textbooks as they seek solutions to some of the most vexing math problem sets a first-year student might encounter in Theoretical Linear Algebra and Calculus.

These are problem sets that could stump even a graduate student, but with this group of young mathematicians, the challenges are welcome.
