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


Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2012 PME national meeting at MathFest in Madison, Wisconsin?

Probably not. 🙁 We’ll keep encouraging them, though.

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?

One recent graduate is completing his first year of a PhD program in math. One current graduate will be starting a masters program in math.

If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
