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:
We had two very interesting math lectures this semester. One on the topic of Infinite Series by Prof. Jeff Meyer, and another discussing Fractals by Prof. Vincent Fatica.
Also, we enjoyed a visit from the Syracuse GO club for a game night and sponsered a problem solving/origami event. We had a lot of fun this semester!
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. :
Our previous president, Robert Miller, has been accepted into the mathematics Phd program at University of Washington, Seatle.
Also, our previous vice-president, Sarah Thomas, has been accepted into the
statistics Phd program at Rice University and was awarded a full Teaching
Assistantship. Both will be attending this fall.
