2010-2011 Chapter Report

Advisor: Paul Klingsberg


President: Megan Rigler
Vice President: Robert Cocci and Tyler Gaspich

Number of New Members Inducted: 9

Number of Continuing Members: 13

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

The chapter elected to induct 11 members of the SJU class of 1974 who were instrumental in the effort to establish a chapter here but who were not already members. These 11 are in addition to the 9 undergraduates elected, so in total, the chapter elected 20 new members.

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?

Tyler Gaspich presented a summary of his summer 2010 research at the Conference on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, Portland OR, Feb. 24-Feb. 27, 2011. Brian Klatt received the Math Department award to best graduating senior. Mr. Klatt will commence work on his Ph.D. in mathematics at Lehigh University in the fall. Megan Rigler received the Actuarial Science award to best graduating senior. She also received the University Student Senate Award for Scholarship, and she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
