Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the PME national meeting at MathFest in Providence, Rhode Island?
Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
This year we had two new and very interesting activities. First, we had "Art and Craft Evening" , where PME students and faculty from the Department of Mathematics created beautiful mathematical designs. You can find the pictures of designs on our webpage www.marshall.edu/pme.
Second interesting activity was "Math Mystery". In this game, students and faculty devided into several teams and followed from one clue to another untill one team found the last clue and discovered who was a famous mathematician. The clues were very original and consisted not only of mathematical knowledge but also mathematical history.
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. :
