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!

Congrats to our soon-to-be graduates as they finish up their last classes today!  SU 2018!

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.  

Applied Mathematics majors, Gerald Roman-Gonzalez (left) and Billy Heidel, gave a STEMinar on the Mathematical Analysis of Languages from the research that they performed this semester with Dr. Ben Wilson.  Using concepts from information theory such as entropy, they analyzed the complexity of several languages. First defined and studied by Claude Shannon in 1948, the entropy of a written language measures how much information is produced on average for each letter of text in the language.  Gerald and Billy did an excellent job, delighting a large audience of over 20 people.
