This semester, Applied Math majors Gerald Roman-Gonzalez and Billy Heidel are working on an independent research project with math professor, Dr. Ben Wilson. The research, which Dr. Wilson and Gerald began as a summer research project during the S3RP program at Stevenson, involves analyzing the complexity of constructed languages using tools from information theory.  Gerald and Billy work on the project together each week.  Then, at the end of the semester, they will present their work at the School of the Sciences Poster Session.

 

Math junior, Jess Rega, was chosen as the Athlete of the Week today!  Jess had a top toss of 12.26 m in the shot put to finish second overall in the throwing events at the NYU Invitational held at the New York Armory on February 9th.  Congrats Jess!  At interview with Jess can be found at:

Students look forward to the weekly Math Teas.  It's a great opportunity for applied math majors to talk with friends and faculty, play games, grab a bite to eat, do some homework, or hang out with friends.  This semester, Math Tea takes place on Tuesdays 1:00-2:00 in the Math Collaboratory, MAC S150.

SoLVE is a resource available to all students taking physics.  The goals of this academic support program are to improve students' problem solving strategies, to increase exposure to course material, to increase students' confidence in problem solving, and to practice study skills. Students enrolled in Physics I or II can attend any of the four one-hour sessions offered each week. In each session, students work in small groups on problem sets created by the physics professors and the SoLVE coordinator. So far this spring semester, over half of the students enrolled in physics have taken advantage of this valuable resource.

Math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, and his wife, Sydney Gross, completed a marathon in Phoenix over winter break. The race featured several rock 'n' roll bands scattered throughout the 26.2 mile course. Dr. Wilson has run several half marathons around the country and this was his second time completing a full marathon.
