Update from the Spring 2023 MAA sectional meeting

Several of our undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty attended and participated in the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Section Meeting at Ole Miss on 2-4 March 2023. More than 150 participants from colleges and universities across Louisiana and Mississippi were in attendance. Participants competed in mathematics competitions and presented talks on research and scholarship.

  • Undergraduates Bailey Meche and Scott Whitman competed in the 20th Annual Integration Bee.
  • Undergraduates Logan Richard, Bryan Flores, Scott Whitman, and Bailey Meche competed and placed 4th in the Mathematics Team Competition, missing 3rd place by only 7 points.
  • Bailey Meche presented his undergraduate research project titled DiseaseNet: A Unified Approach to Disease Detection.
  • Graduate students Yusuf Afolabi and Arindam Sutradhar presented talks on their most recent research. Arindam spoke on Essential Codimension and Lifting Projections and Yusuf spoke on A Second-Order Accurate Crank-Nicolson Type Scheme for Nonlinear Time-Space Reaction-Diffusion Equations on Time-Graded Meches.
  • Faculty member Christy Sue Langley spoke on Redesigning Your Math Curriculum with Coreqs, Planning, and Practice.
