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


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


Pi Mu Epsilon Lecture Series: There were two speakers in the the Pi Mu Epsilon Lecture Series this year -- both were students speaking on their summer projects. The first talk was given by Anita Doherty on November 4. Her title was ``Playing with Fire: My Summer REU Experience." She prepared a power-point presentation to explain her results. Cathy Purtell, who worked at NASA, made a presentation on February 19, 2003, entitled ``Programming for the Stars: My Summer at NASA." She also used a power-point presentation including some of her programming results.


Pi Mu Epsilon organized the department's annual open house. This year it was held on October 1, 2002, in Science 105. The speaker was Peter Turbek from Purdue Calumet. His title was ``How to Catch a Lion in the Desert: A Tour of Advanced Mathematics."
