Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
The chapter hosted Math Awareness Week activities, including guest lectures as well as presentations by students on their respective undergraduate research topics. In addition, the students actively participated in our annual Math Fair, with lectures and math “games” intended for local area high school students.
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2013 PME national meeting at MathFest in Hartford, Connecticut?
No, but one student did present her work at the the GSUMC’13 (Garden State Undergraduate Math Conference).
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.
