Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:

1) EULER DAY was held at Bridgewater State College on March 31st 2007. We celebrated the 300th anniversity of the birth of Euler with 4 talks on Euler’s work and a birhday cake.

2) On April 22nd 2007 Dr James Tanton of the St. Mark’s Institute of Mathematics gave a fascinating talk on “Weird Multiplication” which engaged the entire audience at our Abramson Colluquium/Pi Mu Epsilon Induction Ceremony.

Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the PME national meeting at MathFest in San Jose, California?


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. :

Several of our current students gave talks at the Nation Conference of Undergraduate Research (NCUR) held at the Dominican University of California in April 2007. One of our students won a scholarship, the James Fitzgerald Memorial Award, in May 2007. Three students are entering Master’s programs in Fall 2007 and one student begins work in a Ph.D. program in Spring 2008.
