2011-2012 Chapter Report

Advisor: George Gilbert

Number of New Members Inducted:5

Number of Continuing Members: 4

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

We had our 30th annual Calculus Bee. Everyone works each problem, with a 1-3 minute time limit - three misses and you are out. Everyone has an ID number, so everyone can see how many are still alive. Several stay once out, so many try to guess who is officiallly still in. The math club went bowling. One goal was the highest prime score.

Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present a paper at the 2012 PME national meeting at MathFest in Madisonb, 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?
