Our summer research program concluded with a day of research talks as students presented their summer research projects to peers and Stevenson faculty and staff. It was a wonderful day and summer for all of the S3RP research students and their faculty mentors.  Alayna Roesener presented research in a talk titled "Analyzing the Effects of the Recommendations from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics on High School Mathematics." Joshua Lang presented research in a talk titled "Predictability and Information Entropy of Musical Compositions."  Both students conducted research with Dr. Ben Wilson, math faculty member.

Applied Mathematics majors Alayna Roesener and Joshua Lang attended the MAA MathFest mathematics conference in Cincinnati along with math faculty Dr. Mark Branson and Dr. Ben Wilson. Both students presented talks based on research done with Dr. Wilson through Stevenson's S3RP summer research program. Dr. Branson and Dr. Wilson also presented at the conference.

This summer, senior Applied Math major, Caroline Dangel, is completing her Capstone internship at M.G. Brown and Associates, a financial planning firm of Ameriprise Financial.  She is working with a paraplanner who then works under Mel Brown, a certified financial advisor.  Caroline handles client profiles using the Ameriprise software and addresses concerns that clients may have regarding their accounts. Caroline really likes seeing the financial side of business and can see herself pursuing a career in the financial advisory field.  In her words, "I have learned so much already which I feel will prepare me for my potential future career in the finance field."  Caroline has been invited to continue working at the firm part-time through the rest of her senior year.

Rising senior Applied Mathematics major Alayna Roesener and math professor, Dr. Ben Wilson, are doing research this summer as part of Stevenson's Summer Science Scholars Research Program (S3RP) in the field of mathematics education. The goal of their research is to understand the effects the recommendations of the 2018 publication, Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics, from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) on high school mathematics education. Catalyzing Change outlines a series of four key guidelines for high schools to implement in order to improve mathematics education including the elimination of student and teacher tracking, focusing on teaching a set of “Essential Concepts”, improving teaching practices that are consistent with research-informed methods, and offering continuous, four-year mathematics pathways for all students. Alayna and Dr. Wilson are interviewing middle and high school math educators, administrators, and curriculum developers to get a better sense of the current state of high school mathematics education. Specifically, they would like to learn how well it aligns with the recommendations of Catalyzing Change and whether or not there are plans to work toward the guidelines laid out in the publication.  This research experience is a great opportunity for Alayna as her career plan is to be a high school math teacher.
