Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
1) After several years of inactivity, our
chapter was reactivated on January 26 by PME Council member Brigitte
Servatius, Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Worcester Polytechnic
Institute. Prof. Servatius gave an engaging talk titled "A beautiful mind
and hyperperfect numbers."
2)Faculty member Jim Propp gave a talk on April 11 titled "Better than Random:
A Hands-On Introduction to Quasirandomness."
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the PME national meeting at MathFest in San Jose, California?
Jason Percival and Michael Williams each plan to
present a paper.
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. :
