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

On May 1, 2009, an enthusiastic audience of students, faculty, and a few parents welcomed our new members and listened to a fabulous talk on "The Diophantine geometry of Apollonian packings", presented by Peter Sarnak of Princeton University.

Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2009 PME national meeting at MathFest in Portland, Oregon?

Likely not.

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?

Patrick Cesarz will enter the Ph.D. prgram in Mathematics at the University of California - San Diego in the fall of 2009.
