Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
1. We had our TROY MathFest undergraduate math conference. Several members presented their work here and participated in our Calculus Competition. 2. We had a Sudoku and KenKen competition.
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2013 PME national meeting at MathFest in Hartford, Connecticut?
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.
2 members accepted to graduate school with assistantships. 1 member participated in an REU. 2 members won Dean’s research award (1st and 3rd place). 5 members presented papers at conferences. 1 member awarded internship with government.
If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
We had an NSF-MAA supported (RUMC grant) regional undergraduate mathematics conference. We had about 60 participants, with about 12 student talks, calculus competition, and graduate school information booth.
