Math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, was invited to speak at Hood College for their Mathematics Seminar. His talk was based on the research in computational linguistics he did jointly with Applied Math majors Billy Heidel and Evan Williams over the summer during the S3RP (Summer Science Scholars Research Program).

Math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, was invited to speak at The College of New Jersey for their Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium series. His talk was based on the research in computational linguistics he did jointly with Applied Math majors Billy Heidel and Evan Williams over the summer during the S3RP program.

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.  

 

 

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".

We are excited that four faculty and staff from the Math and Physics Department were able to attend MathFest this August.  At MathFest, a conference of the Mathematical Association of America, mathematicians present the latest in mathematical research and education each summer.  Stevenson faculty and staff presented both their research and department projects.  They also attended presentations and met with colleagues from other institutions.  MAA meetings always bring great ideas and enthusiasm to SU!
