Student News, Fall 2014

Our students began the fall 2014 semester with a welcome back event hosted by the Student Chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA).  The group held regular meetings throughout the semester and ended with a finals week lunch of pizza and sub sandwiches.

The officers and sponsors of the group applied for and received funds for ten students to attend the Georgia Mathematics Conference in October.  The conference is for K-college mathematics teachers, and is held each year at the Rock Eagle 4-H camp in Eatonton, GA.  Our students had a chance to attend outstanding talks and network with teachers of all levels.

Students will also have a chance to attend the MAA – Southeast Section Meeting in March.  The department will sponsor at least one team to compete in Math Jeopardy at the conference.  Chasen Smith will coordinate the team training for that event.

Two students, Charles Lanning and Bridgette Presley, participated in the Putnam exam which was held on December 6th.  The Putnam exam is a weekend-long event where teams of students compete.  Dr. Goran Lesaja coordinated the exam preparation which began in October.  Results of the competition will be announced later in the spring.
