Applied Mathematics News

Date: Feb 2018

This spring, eight students were initiated into the Maryland Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon National Mathematics Honors society. Led by Applied Mathematics majors, Rebecca Gruver, Courtney Hohn, and Jess Rega, the current President, Vice President, and Treasurer of KME respectively, the induction ceremony involved an overview of the history, ideals, purposes, and symbols of KME. This year marked the 13th initiation for KME at Stevenson. Parents, current KME members, and faculty gathered to watch Olivia Appicella, Billy Heidel, Darian Hileman, Cassie Morris, Alayna Roesener, and Lindsey Weishaar be initiated. Alex Dangel and Cara Habicht were also initiated, but couldn't attend the ceremony. Among other components, qualifications for KME are based on a students GPA, class rank, the number of upper level math courses they have taken, and their performance in their math courses at Stevenson. Congratulations to all of the new KME members!

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!

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.
