Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
Three chapter members participated in an integration bee and a team math contest, sponsored by the regional section of the Mathematical Association of America at the MS/LA meeting in Oxford, MS. On Friday, February 25, in a field of 30 teams, one of the Millsaps teams earned 5th place. Please congratulate the following members of the Millsaps Math Teams: Yue (Joyce) Jiang, Lihuang (Sean) Zhu, Andy Schmegal, Matthew Elliott, Alexander Olinger, and Michael Bell with Team Advisor Dr. Yan Wang. On Thursday, February 24, the Louisiana/Mississippi section of the MAA hosted its annual Integration Bee. This is similar to a spelling bee, but with integrals from calculus. Each college or university in Mississippi or Louisiana was invited to enter at most four students, who competed individually. In a field of 39 students, Yue (Joyce) Jiang won 2nd place.
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?
Two of our newest members have been accepted to medical school.
