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

A few of our members participated in REUs last summer, and gave talks about what they learned (mathematically and more generally) in their program. Also, we had our annual end-of-semester game and pizza night. We had a decent turn out this year, and everybody present had a good time socializing with their fellow students and some faculty members.

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

No, I don’t think so.

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?

Quite a few members got awards and scholarships from our math department. Also, four of our graduates will start their Ph.D. programs in mathematics this coming Fall semester. A couple students presented at MathFest last summer, and a couple other students presented at the St. Lawrence Valley Mathematics Symposium.
