Applied Mathematics News

Congratulations to our two applied math majors who graduated this December.  We are proud of your accomplishments and wish you well in your future endeavors!

School of the Sciences' students who had completed a research or internship project in the summer or fall of 2015 presented their posters at the semi-annual School of the Sciences Poster Session.  Our math students, who are pictured here, all completed internships as part of their Senior Capstones Experiences and did a fabulous job presenting their work to the many visitors to the event! 

The Math Honor Society, Kappa Mu Epsilon, sponsored an end of semester "Afternoon of Games" for students to relax.  Board games and card games kept every entertained for many hours!  A great time was had by all!  


Applied math majors and students involved with Kappa Mu Epsilon (KME), the Math Honor Society, had the opportunity to relax and watch a great movie from 2008 about blackjack. Snacks were served as the students relaxed and learned about a connection between memory, numbers, and winning millions of dollars.

21” is a fact-based story about six MIT students who were trained to become experts in card counting. These six students took a trip to Vegas and won millions of dollars. Oddly enough, ‘counting cards’ is not illegal, but casinos across the nation have picked up on it and began to deny service to those suspected of counting cards. The biggest reason for denial of service is because it takes away from the casino's profit and makes an unfair experience for others at the table.

If you have any questions about how to get involved in KME, please contact Dr. Benjamin Wilson,

Michou Kaku, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the City College of New York, recently visited Stevenson as part of the Baltimore Speaker series. At SU, he met with students and then gave a talk on String Theory and why he became a physicist and futurist. Applied Math sophomore Gerald Roman (left, bottom picture) had the opportunity to sit down with him before his speech to connect on a more personal level. He enjoyed being able to have a one-on-one conversation with someone who is world famous.  Gerald shared, "I learned a lot and am very grateful to have spent this time with him.”
