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

Not that I am aware of.

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


We just had our initiation as usual, capped off with a colloquium talk, "Modeling River Rafting for the Grand Canyon National Park," given by Prof. Catherine Roberts of the College of the Holy Cross. The initiation of new members is the only activity of our chapter.

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. :

One new undergraduate initiate, Ronald Pepino, placed third overall in our annual Calculus Competition. Regina Speicher, who joins the chapter as a graduate student, was honored with the Louis J. DeLuca Memorial Award/ outstanding teaching assistant in the Department.
