Several Stevenson Applied Mathematics majors also attended the JMM including Billy Heidel ('20), Joshua Lang ('21), and Lindsey Weishaar ('19, second picture above). Billy presented a poster in the Undergraduate poster session based on his research with math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson (top picture). His poster was titled To Spin or Not to Spin: Simulating Wheel of Fortune in Python​. Another presenter in the poster session was Samantha Bothwell, the daughter of Stevenson adjunct math professor Cynthia Bothwell (3rd picture). A math major at Colorado State University, Samantha's poster was titled Effects of Maternal Complications ​on Circulating Protein Profiles in Pre Term Infants.

The 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) were held locally this year, in downtown Baltimore. This gave a nice opportunity for Stevenson faculty to easily attend. The JMM attract thousands of mathematicians from around the world each year to attend talks and workshops on teaching and research and to network. Math faculty (l to r in picture above) Ben Wilson, Sarah Blanset, and Mark Branson all attended the meetings.

Applied Math senior, Jess Rega, completed her Honors Capstone internship at Santander Bank near her hometown in Massachusetts.  She presented her Capstone project, "The Metadata Catalogue" to the Stevenson Community at the Capstone Honors Presentations event and at the School of the Sciences Fall Poster Session.  We're excited to share that Jess did such a good job at Santander Bank that she was offered employment for after she graduates from Stevenson in May.  Congratulations!

The department is excited about the new articulation agreement signed with Carroll Community College.  Students who receive a Physical Science AS with Physics from Carroll can directly and seamlessly transfer to the Applied Math major at Stevenson!  After the students complete their degree at Carroll, they can easily complete their BS in Applied Math in the Scientific Track in two additional years.  

Special thanks to Dr. Sarah Blanset, math faculty member, for her work on this articulation agreement.  Shown here is the signing ceremony with Stevenson University President, Dr. Elliot Hirshman (front left), and Carroll Community College President, Dr. James Ball (front right), along with academic administrators from Stevenson and Carroll, including Dr. Ellen Roskes (back left), SU Math/Physics Department Chair.
