AWM hosted our very first event - a movie night to watch Hidden Figures (2016) followed by a discussion of the movie.  The event was well attended and enjoyed by all!  To-go snacks ended a great event!

To make a difference during Stevenson's Weekend of Women, the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Student Chapter held a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.  Fewer than 20 percent of the 1.5 million biographies on English Wikipedia are about women. So, the group researched and improved the pages for female mathematicians.  Good work, good conversation, and good snacks made for a good time by all!

Math alum, Guiliana Datnoff, who graduated in December, and Math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, presented their research at the Paul D. Lack Scholars' Showcase at SU.  The work they presented was based on the research that Guiliana did as her Senior Internship.  They studied student perspectives on recommendations for improving high school mathematics.

The department was excited to virtually welcome Dr. Nick Battista, math faculty member at the College of New Jersey to talk about how jellyfish swimming performance is sensitive to varying certain parameters using computational modeling techniques.  Over 30 faculty and students attended to hear this interesting talk about work he and his students have done!
