Dr. Jamie Goodall (left, Department of Public History) and Dr. Kerry Spencer's (Department of Math and Physics) paper, “The Good, The Questionable, The Toxic: Using Muggle-Borns as a Lens for First-Gen Experience with Mentorship,” will be published in an upcoming book, The Pedagogy of Harry Potter. The paper will examine the difficulty both muggle-born and first-generation university students face as they navigate appropriate and inappropriate mentor-mentee relationships without the benefit of cultural fluency and against existing biases. The paper offers advice for both students and faculty members on creating and nurturing effective mentoring relationships.  

The Department of Mathematics and Physics  is very excited to start the 2018-2019 year! The start of a new academic year always brings wonderful energy and excitement to campus. It also gives us a fresh start with new programs, ideas, and plans.

More details will follow on this blog about our students, our activities, exciting classes and our faculty. 

WELCOME to our new students and WELCOME BACK to our returning students. We hope you’re as excited about the upcoming semester as we are!

Faculty and staff were in for a real treat at the Faculty-Staff meeting to open the 2018-19 academic year.  The University Singers led the audience in an interactive music presentation.  The University Singers were great- and two of them were Applied Math majors.  Shout out to Applied Math junior, Rebecca Williford and Applied Math sophomore, Daniel Belanger!  The department faculty and staff loved seeing you!

Applied Math major Zachary Delong is completing his internship at the United States Census Bureau. "I am working with the Quarterly Services Survey, where I analyze data that companies send in regarding their income. I am responsible for a variety of different industries."  Zach is really excited about this internship because, "I hope to work with numbers and analyze sports statistics so this is a good start for my career!" 

 

 

Math faculty and staff, Dr. Mark Branson, Ms. Thairen Greene, Ms. Eileen McGraw, and Dr. Ben Wilson attended MAA MathFest 2018 in Denver.  Dr. Wilson and Ms. McGraw attended a special workshop on Data Science and the Mathematics Department (top picture), Dr. Wilson gave a talk on research he has been doing with some Stevenson Applied Mathematics majors titled "Would Wheel of Fortune be Easier in Dothraki or Klingon?" (second picture) and Ms. McGraw (3rd picture) and Ms. Greene (last picture) gave a talk on the recent additions of several co-remediation classes in our department titled "The Journey to Co-remediation".
