Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
Our colloquium speaker Dr. Susan Loepp, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Williams College, presented “Protecting your Personal Information: An Introduction to Encryption.” Induction took place on April 7, 2013.
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.
One member presented at the 27th National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) and is going to graduate school. Another gave a presentation at the Symposium on Undergraduate Research at our institution.
If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
