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

Our chapter advisor, Dr. Philip Yasskin, gave a very interesting and interactive talk on platonic solids. Not only did we learn about Euler numbers, but we also got to build platonic solids using interlocking plastic blocks.

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

Cara Montgomery, Lisa Cangelose, Jason Pfister, Andrew Matteson, Hannah Saugier, and Bret Lockhart.

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. :
