Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the PME national meeting at MathFest in Albuquerque, New Mexico?
Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
In April our chapter won the award "Honor Society of the Year" from the USF Council of Honor Societies.
Our chapter met every two weeks during the academic year. Everytime we had free pizza and an invited speaker. Dr. Gordon Fox was our Induction Banquet Speaker with the presentation "Fear and Loathing: Mathematics and Science".
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. :
