II) Prof. Donald McDonald of New College of Florida spoke on "Emerging Science and Problems for the Young at Heart" during the PME Induction Ceremony in April.
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2009 PME national meeting at MathFest in Portland, Oregon?
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?
