Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:

We again held our annual Math Formal in November during which time we have the PME induction ceremony, followed by a formal dinner, dance and game playing. Attendance at this event is usually around 40 students and faculty and we had a marvelous time! In the spring, we celebrated Pi Day by writing the digits of pi around our central fountain and then holding a hands-free pie eating contest in the afternoon.

Did any of your chapter members present papers at the 2008 PME national meeting at MathFest in Madison, WI?

Yes, we had three members give talks at the meeting in Madison, Ashley Burt, Will Cousins and Brent Hancock.

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?
