The Annual Spring Spectacular was just... spectacular this year!  The well-attended event included demonstrations, games, liquid nitrogen ice cream making, a vacuum shooter, a Ping-Pong ball shoot-off, a telescope with a solar lens, and other various puzzles and games scheduled throughout the afternoon.  An amazing time was had by all!  Special thanks to applied math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, and chemistry faculty member, Dr. Jeremy Burkett, for organizing this amazing event!


Members of the Math Department and the Academic Link presented at the recent Maryland College Learning Center Association Annual Conference.  Dr. Ellen Roskes (left), Department Chair, and Kevin Knudsen (right), Link Director, discussed how they worked together to develop a Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Program.  The students, Olivia Apicella (left center) and Courtney Hohn, Applied Math senior, shared their impressions as PAL Student Leaders in the program.  Courtney, a PAL Student Leader for Precalculus, shared how students feel comfortable asking her questions on the course material and how she can help them with understanding the work and completing the problems.

Faculty and Student at Conference

Dr. Benjamin Wilson and Applied Mathematics Junior, Evan Williams, attended the Spring 2019 conference of the MD-DC-VA section of the Mathematics Association of America in Frederick, MD cohosted by Hood College and Frederick Community College. Evan presented a poster on his and Dr. Wilson's work from summer 2018 titled, "Around the World in 239 Translations: Computing the Entropy of Written Language Using the Bible." The research examined the complexity of 239 different languages by computing quantities like entropy based on n-gram frequencies in translations of the Bible in each language. At the conference they also attended talks by students and faculty from other schools in the section.
