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

Problem Solving Team – Some of the student members of PME here at Marshall University created a weekly meeting where they simply get together and work on open interesting problems. There have been discussions about doing problems from journals for submission next year. The students have also discusses joining in competitions now that they have experience working on problems together. Table Tennis Tournament – The student members of PME hosted a mathematical awareness ping pong tourny this spring in the student center at Marshall University. We made posters with interesting artwork and math information. Also we were able to raise a little money with a baked goods sale and give prizes to the winners.

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

Not this year.

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?

We had a few presentations at the fall meeting of the PME Ohio Section and a presentation at the spring meeting of the MAA Ohio Section. Three students graduated and one of them is going into the AirForce. Congratulations everyone!
