Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
Halloween Tricks & Treats - PME members brought candy (tricks) and a mathematical "trick or treat" to share. We heard about Vedic mathematics, tricks for divisibility, ways to visualize summing an infinite series, and other fun tricks. Movie Night - We got our library to purchase "Flatland - The Movie", and we purchased popcorn and soda. We invited all math majors as well as the local high school's math club. About 50 people attended our showing of the movie --- it was a blast!
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the PME national meeting at MathFest in Madison, Wisconsin?
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?
