Students and faculty from the Mathematics & Computer Science Department recently attended the Mathematical Association of American’s Southeastern Section (MAA-SE) meeting March at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Dr. Andy Miller, chair and professor of mathematics, and Dr. Ryan Fox, assistant professor of math and education, led a three-hour workshop titled “Projects and Case Studies to Promote Quantitative Literacy.” Dr. Brad Schleben, assistant professor of mathematics, gave a talk on “Infinite Wedge Representations of a Lie Superalgebra.”
Students Kailee Gerzema, Savannah Halliday and Katie Kruzan presented on “Unique Opportunities for Growth and Collaboration via a Math/CS Club.” Two students gave undergraduate research presentations including Jonathan Hesser on “3D Hyperstereo Image Stitching” and Tucker Dowell on “Exploring Ramsey Theory.”
Allison Hardee, Halliday, Dowell, and Katie Kruzan formed Belmont’s Math Jeopardy tournament team. Dr. Sarah Ann Fleming, associate professor of mathematics, served as their sponsor. Belmont’s team earned one of the “wild card” spots in the second round where they were defeated by Berry College.
