Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
There was the Pi Day(March 11) celebration of 2011. Many students who have interest in Mathematics came and joined the mathematics department, and shared various kinds of pie. In the eigen talk of January 15, 2011, many people came and joined to watch a video about "Flatland" provided by Theron Calkins.
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2011 PME national meeting at MathFest in Lexington, Kentucky?
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?
