Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:
On Monday, November 1, 2010, Professor James Sellers delivered the Fourth Annual Pi Mu Epsilon Lecture - "Revisiting What Euler and the Bernoullis Knew About Convergent Infinite Series". The talk was attended by about 80 participants most of whom were undergraduate students. We are continuing the tradition of having undergraduate students talk about their research and outreach activities. Two students presented their work in the fall of 2010.
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?
PME Member Zach Norwood has become the first University of Nebraska-Lincoln student to win the Gates Cambridge Scholarship, and one of 30 in the United States this year. The scholarship is for graduate study in any field at the University of Cambridge in England.
