Students, faculty and staff gathered for the annual Holiday Party.  We celebrated the end of the semester and the upcoming holidays, the students who participated in the Math Problem of the Week competition, and Dr. Neal Miller's recent marriage.  Everyone was able to enjoy some homemade and store-bought treats and some students were able to play a final round of Bohnanza (the Bean game played weekly at Math Teas).  A good time was had by all!

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.  Congratulations to Alayna Roesener (Applied Math Major), Cassie Morris (Computer Information Systems Major and Math Minor), and Darian Hileman (Applied Math Major) for earning the top three most points.  All three were given gift cards and prizes for their accomplishment.  A new competition will start again in the spring!

Students and faculty in the department were excited to see a supermoon!  The term supermoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, which he defined as "a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near  its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit."  Since it's at its closest to Earth, it looks bigger and brighter to the naked eye. Students reported being surprised by how big, bright and beautiful the moon was!

Congratulations to Applied Math freshman, Ian Gould, on being named  the 2017 Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Rookie of the Year as a kicker on the SU football team!  Ian has enjoyed the finest season by a kicker for the Mustangs.  He has accounted for 73 points for the Mustangs this season, going 12-14 on field goal attempts, while he has converted all 37 PAT attempts thus far in 2017.  Go Mustangs!

Everyone attending Mathstravaganza had a fantastic time!  The games and demonstrations were fun to lead and to participate in.  We were glad to welcome all our visitors to SU.  Everyone is already looking forward to next year's event!
