If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
We received a PME conference grant to help support the Michigan Undergraduate Mathematics Conference in April of 2016. The money provided pizza and soda for the undergraduates so that they did not have to pay for a lunch and made the conference cost-free for students. Matching funds were from the Michigan section of the MAA.
