    Here is a fun exercise: Write an expression for the volume of a pizza with height “a” and radius “z”

    If you have decided to read on despite the lame exercises my vice-chairman included above, we take it that you have compounded your interest for our Mathematics Club. You don’t need to be a brilliant mathematician to join our club, the only prerequisite is to be genuinely passionate and have fun during our sessions. Even if you find calculus slightly derivative, trigonometry too graphic, or if you aren’t that partial to fractions, worry not because we guarantee our variety of activities each week will engage every member!

    To sum it all up, we subtract any questions or doubts and multiply happiness exponentially, to give every member the best experience that he/she will have and retain for an infinite amount of time!
