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

At our award ceremony, the guest speaker was Jessica Burchfield, a class of 2007 Nazareth College graduate with BAs in Mathematics and Italian, and 2006 PME inductee. Jessica addressed the audience with a presentation entitled, “Math, Agatha Christie, Language, and Other Deceivingly Random Topics.”

Did any of your chapter members attend or present a paper at the 2011 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?

Kerry Gannon will be studying abroad in the fall, through the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics.
