Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
1) Students prepared conference presentations for various conferences, including YSU regional PME, by holding "practice" sessions for their peers. 2)Combinatorical Games Tournament was held with round-robin and bracket style elimination.
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?
Michelle Cordier has a paper titled Combinatorics on Border Correlations of Partial Words that is "under review." Mike Donzella, David Zach, Matthew Grimm, and Kathy Varga are participating in REUs this summer.
