Welcome to the homepage of the Maryville College Mystery Cult! We are a mathematics reading group which will meet weekly in SSC201 every Tuesday at 4:00. We are presently reading Euclid's Elements. Each meeting, members will present their favorite propositions, and we will continue to work through the book until we either run out of Euclid, or (more likely) run out of time.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Even if you haven't read any of the book, please stop by to see us work through the propositions. Maybe after you come to a session, you'll want to join in the fun!

Books

This section provides links to the official books of the club. The great thing about studying ancient mathematics texts is that the copyright expired centuries ago! (Well, at least on the originals. Translation copyrights may vary.) Our present book is available for free in PDF format.

Euclid's Elements


Other Books

Here are some other books that have been mentioned in the meetings. Some of these aren't math books per se, but they are part of the classical liberal arts tradition.


Meetings

Here is a summary of our meetings.

October 4, 2016

Our introductory meeting started with a presentation about Euclid's elements and how it figures into the broader liberal arts tradition. We also carried out the construct and proof of proposition 1, and then agreed to meet again in two weeks.
