Belmont Professor of Mathematics Dr. Daniel Biles and four mathematics majors gave probability demonstrations at the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Expo at Middle Tennessee State University on April 9. The Belmont students taking part were Annie Brunelle, Katie Kruzan, Savannah Halliday and Mallory White.
This exposition is an annual event, hosted by the Middle Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub (MTSIH), that features projects by middle and high school students. Students from schools and districts that are MTSIH partners regularly engage in projects involving an extended process of inquiry in response to a complex question, problem or challenge. These rigorous projects help students learn key academic content and practice skills necessary for success such as communication, collaboration and critical thinking.
