Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
The induction included a formal dinner, and it was the first of its kind in recent years. We initiated 34 new members, which was a substantial increase.
The chapter hosted a Software Workshop that introduced some students, for the first time, to the software suites MATLAB, Maple, and Scientific Workplace. A brief overview of each suite was provided and was accompanied by hands-on activities.
The chapter supported the Spelman College Math Club's project of building a domino portrait of renowned Spelman math professor, Dr. Etta Falconer (deceased).
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the PME national meeting at MathFest in Knoxville, Tennessee?
