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


Induction was held in the Fall at the Christmas Banquet, a joint event with the Euclidean Mathematics Club. The Banquet was attended by 35 people. Dr. Renee Fister spoke about the use of optimal control in biological problems.


The Spring Meeting featured Dr. Tan Zhang, who spoke about the extensions of the Pythagorean theorem to manifolds.
