Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
This competition had two categories: One for Math majors/minors, and one for non-Math majors/minors. Each category was given a problem with one week to submit an answer. The first correct solution received was awarded a $50 cash prize.
Math Faculty Jeopardy: We played Jeopardy to see who knew the most about the Mathematics faculty.
Family Math Night: PME members led fun mathematical explorations with the local elementary school children and parents.
