Once again, everyone had a lot of fun all semester with our Math Problem of the Week competition.  Students won points for the fast and correct submission of solutions to fun and challenging problems.  Congratulations to our winners, all Applied Math sophomores:  1st Place- Billy Heidel (center), 2nd place: Alayna Roesener (right), and 3rd place: Darian Hileman All three were given gift cards and prizes for their accomplishment.  A new competition will start again in the fall!

Congratulations to Applied Math junior, James Wiercinski, on being named the 2018 MAC Commonwealth Pitcher of the Year! James a left-hander, made 12 appearances including 10 starts.  He posted a team-best 3.31 ERA to go with his 5-4 record.  

The Department's annual Approximation of Pi Day Celebration (3/14 is during Spring Break) was a big hit! Math students and faculty enjoyed pizza pies, dessert pies, and other treats. Students presented interesting facts about pi and the partygoers voted on which was the most interesting. The winning fact was Rebecca Gruver's fact about a pi language in which works are written using words of lengths 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9,... successively (in the order they appear in pi).

The Stevenson University baseball team swept this week's MAC Commonwealth weekly awards,  with Applied Math junior, James Wiercinski, being selected as the Pitcher of the Week.  James allowed two hits and one run in five innings of work in a no-decision in the season opener against Penn State Abington Saturday, an eventual 3-1 win.  He struck out eight and walked three in his outing.  Congrats, James!

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:
