Applied Mathematics News

Students look forward to the weekly Math Teas.  It's a great opportunity for applied math majors to talk with friends and faculty, play games, grab a bite to eat, do some homework, or hang out with friends.  This semester, Math Tea takes place on Tuesdays 1:00-2:00 in the Math Collaboratory, MAC S150.

SoLVE is a resource available to all students taking physics.  The goals of this academic support program are to improve students' problem solving strategies, to increase exposure to course material, to increase students' confidence in problem solving, and to practice study skills. Students enrolled in Physics I or II can attend any of the four one-hour sessions offered each week. In each session, students work in small groups on problem sets created by the physics professors and the SoLVE coordinator. So far this spring semester, over half of the students enrolled in physics have taken advantage of this valuable resource.

Math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, and his wife, Sydney Gross, completed a marathon in Phoenix over winter break. The race featured several rock 'n' roll bands scattered throughout the 26.2 mile course. Dr. Wilson has run several half marathons around the country and this was his second time completing a full marathon. 

The Department of Mathematics and Physics is very excited to start the spring semester!  Welcome to our new students and welcome back to our returning students.  Don't forget to join us for the weekly Student-Faculty Math Tea, Tuesdays 1-2 in the Math Learning Collaboratory, S150!

Over winter break, ​​Dr. Mark Branson (right) and Dr. Ben Wilson attended the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in San Diego. With thousands of mathematicians attending from around the world, the JMM is one of the largest international math conferences each year. Both professors gave presentations at the meeting: Dr. Branson spoke​ in a session on Humanistic Mathematics titled Fighting Alternative Facts: Teaching Quantitative Reasoning with Social Issues. Dr. Wilson presented in a session on Inquiry-Based Teaching and Learning titled Active First Semester Calculus.
