Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
We had two teams participate at the Wisconsin Mathematics Modeling Challenge in October. The Wisconsin Mathematics Modeling Challenge is a regional modeling contest organized for the third time at UW-La Crosse. Five students attended Wisconsin Council Green Lake Conference in May.
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.
Jacob Lange and Jacob Wolff gave talks at the Wisconsin MAA Spring meeting in April.
If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
