Montana Alpha University of Montana Chapter Report

Advisor: Nikolaus Vonessen


President: Stephanie Bell

Number of New Members Inducted: 9

Number of Continuing Members: 15

Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:

Twice this semester we had presentations by undergraduate students: On March 15, several students shared their experiences with research in general, participating in REU’s, and presenting at conferences (all while being paid!). And on April 26, three students gave presentations on their research projects.

Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2011 PME national meeting at MathFest in Lexington, Kentucky?

Do you have any news about current students or recent graduates, for example, scholarships or other awards, acceptances to graduate school, paper presentations at conferences?
