Dr. Francis Su, president-elect of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College, was on campus April 7 to speak on “Grace in Learning and Teaching” in the University’s chapel service. Due to many requests for the text of this talk, Su created a blog on this topic. His Math Fun Facts website receives a million hits each year. While Su was at Belmont, he also met informally with Mathematics and Computer Science faculty and student members of the Belmont MAA student chapter.
Established in 1915, the Mathematical Association of America is the largest professional society that focuses on mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level. Members include university, college and high school teachers, graduate and undergraduate students, pure and applied mathematicians, computer scientists, statisticians, and many others in academia, government, business and industry.
