Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
In March, 2013 we held “game night” one evening where the faculty and students met to eat and play board games. Games ranged from mathematics such as Mastermind, Labrinth, and Blokus, to less though provoking games such as Apples to Apples. Approximately 20 students and 7 faculty attended.
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2013 PME national meeting at MathFest in Hartford, Connecticut?
Yes, Takayuki Iguchi.
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.
Of our 17 graduating Pi Mu Epsilon members, 8 are heading directly to graduate school in math or math related disciplines. Two of them will be attending MIT.
If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
