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:

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics president Cathy Seeley spoke on campus. We invited area K-12 teachers and administrators as well as the education department. We had a packed house.

We had an applied math researcher come to speak on how research is not the way that most students picture it - in particular it is collaborative and can be done from 9-5, and it is really fun.

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. :

Kristen Johnson presented her research at the Southwestern Student Research Symposium.

Whitney McCall presented her research on changing perspectives of mathematics preservice teachers at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics National Meeting.
