Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
Because of its small size, Pi Mu Epsilon members participate in regular meetings and activities with the Math Club throughout the year. One of the new PME initiates earned the “Best of Section” designation at the Annual Technical Meeting of the Oklahoma Academy of Science for her oral presentation on “Hyperthermia as a Treatment Option for Tumors”; the project was study under the guidance of the Chapter advisor. This same student attended an REU this summer at the University of Texas in Tyler TX.
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.
If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
