Stevenson Math faculty Ms. Eileen McGraw and Dr. Ben Wilson attended MAA MathFest 2017 in Chicago. The conference brings together mathematicians from around the world for presentations focusing on both teaching and research in mathematics. At the conference, Dr. Wilson received a certificate for being a Project NExT Fellow, a professional development program for new or recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences.  Both Ms. McGraw and Dr. Wilson attended a mini-conference within the larger meeting on the topic of Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL), a teaching method used in many math courses at Stevenson.


The U.S. Postal Service is anticipating the upcoming total eclipse of the sun with a stamp celebrating the majesty of solar eclipses. This new stamp will be the first U.S. stamp to use thermochromic ink, which reacts to the heat of your touch. When you place your finger over the black disc on the stamp (left), the ink will change from black to clear and reveal an image of the moon (right). The image reverts back to the black disc when it cools. The stamp is a photograph of a total solar eclipse that was seen over Libya in 2006 by astrophysicist Fred Espenak.

Here's a math problem for you to try:

Multiply: 259 x your age x 39

See the magical number you get!
