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

We are a new chapter and in March 2008, we held our Chapter Installation and Induction ceremony. One of our students, Bo Gilbert, gave a talk entitled “Zeros of Two-Term Recursive Polynomials” at the Texas Section of the MAA. Three of our students (Bo Gilbert, Austin Howard, and Rayyan Bilwani) gave talks at the TORUS conference. They also won the student Jeopardy competition.

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

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?

Acceptances to graduate school: Bo Gilbert, Texas Tech University, Mathematics Austin Howard, UT Dallas, Physics Thuy Ngo, Midwestern State University, Computer Science
