Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
The chapter co-sponsored PI Day activities on March 14. There were about 25 students and faculty present. Prizes (pies, of course!) were given to the winners of the two PI Sudoku contests. The chapter again sponsored student talks in the spring semester.
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2012 PME national meeting at MathFest in Madison, Wisconsin?
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.
Recent graduate Paul Richeson was hired as an actuary at the medical insurance company Humana in Chicago, IL. 2012 graduate Anastasia Jack was recently hired by Lincoln Life Insurance Company in Fort Wayne, IN for a position in financial processing.
If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
The chapter received a matching prize grant. The money received from the national organization was matched by the department and the money was split between the students giving the two best talks: Aldene Hoilett (first – $60) and Guchen Liu (second – $40).
