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

Dmytro Yersoshkin earned a score of 49 in last fall's Putnam. This earned him a rank of 64.5 out of 3,753. Our induction featured a very stimulating talk on matroids and greedy algorithms by Prof. Stephen B. Maurer of Swarthmore College.

Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the PME national meeting at MathFest in Madison, Wisconsin?

Yes: Dmytro Yeroshkin will be there.

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?

Brittany Fasy '07 (now at Duke) will be making a presentation at Mathfest. Jiaming Chen made a presentation at an economics conference; I do not have the particulars.
