The purpose of this lecture series, Life Experiences in Mathematics, is to bring to campus former mathematics students to talk to Baylor's undergraduates about the importance of mathematics and how it influenced, shaped, and helped their successful careers. We thank Baylor University, and in particular Dean Lee Nordt of the College of Arts and Sciences, for funds that have made this lecture series possible.

The Department of Mathematics has two other distinguished annual lecture series, the Baylor Lecture Series in Mathematics and the Baylor Undergraduate Lecture Series in Mathematics.

__Previous Speakers__: James C. Meyerhoff (2009-10), Brian Pennington (2010-11), Ray Perryman (2011-12), Michael Hosea (2012-13), Bonnie Ray (2013-14), Alan Schiemenz (2014-2015)

Dr. Evelyn Lamb gave the seventh annual *Life Experiences in Mathematics* lecture when she visited Baylor University on February 25, 2016. Her lecture, entitled "*Math Communication for Fun and Profit or Building a Creative Career in Mathematics*", will be given at 4 pm in SR344.

Evelyn Lamb is a mathematician and freelance writer. She graduated from Baylor in 2005 with a rather eclectic University Scholars degree, focusing on math, music theory, viola performance, and classics. She got her Ph.D. in math from Rice University in 2012. After graduating, she had an American Association for the Advancement of Science mass media fellowship working for *Scientific American*.

Evelyn is finishing a postdoc at the University of Utah and moving on to doing math communication full-time. She has written for the American Mathematical Society, the Association for Women in Mathematics, Scientific American, and Slate. She writes the blog Roots of Unity for Scientific American and contributes to the Blog on Math Blogs for the AMS.

She is delighted to come back to the Baylor math department to thank the professors who sparked her love of the subject.
