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

We hosted the Spring 2008 AMS/MAA Joint Meeting for New Jersey and the Garden State Undergraduate Mathematics Competition. Kevin Obara presented a poster at the GSUMC on Business Applications (Black-Scholes-Merton Formula). Philip Nelson made an oral presentation at the GSUMC on Generalized Inverses of Singular-Square and Rectangular Matrices.

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


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. :
