Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter mathematical activities this year:
We celebrated Pi Day this year with a pizza and pie lunch. The club also organized a contest for designing department t-shirts; we came up with a great design, and will be handing out the shirts to our incoming freshmen this year.
Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2012 PME national meeting at MathFest in Madison, Wisconsin?
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.
This year we had six of our seniors accepted to graduate school: Brian Burnap (Cambridge), Kelly Blakeman (UC Riverside), Michelle Bongard (Rensselaer), Alondra Vega (UC Davis), Megan Ly (Boulder) and Kate Hake (UC Santa Barbara). Another senior, Carmen Casteneda, will be joining Teach for America.
If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
