Welcome to MAA-Wisconsin Spring 2010 Meeting!
The 78th annual meeting of the Wisconsin Section of the Mathematical Association of America took place on Friday and Saturday, April 16 and 17 at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Please see the "Photos" page for pictures from the meeting. The conference included invited addresses by three prominent mathematicians:
- Leah Welty (Northwestern University Medical School) will speak on
"Bayesian Distributed Lag Models: Estimating the Effects of Particulate Matter
Air Pollution on Daily Mortality."
- Betty Mayfield (Hood College and the MAA) will speak on "Women and
Mathematics in the Time of Euler."
- Jennifer Szydlik (UW Oshkosh) will speak on "Teaching to Inspire Mathematical Thinking."
As always, there will be numerous contributed papers by members of the section. Speaker proposal forms are still arriving, and a schedule will be posted when it becomes available.
The conference will begin at noon on Friday, April 16. All activities on Friday will take place in Reeve Memorial Union on the UW Oshkosh campus. Registration and exhibits including MAA book sales will continue until 5:00 that day, and will open again at 8:00 on Saturday. Saturday meetings and presentations, except for the invited address, will take place in Swart Hall.
“Face-Off!”, our game show for teams of undergraduates, will start at 5:30 on Friday. Please see the "Face Off" link for more information. The banquet will follow Face-Off.
Many of the speakers who have already submitted proposals have indicated that their talks will be appropriate for undergraduate students, and we also will have talks by students. Please make sure your students know they will be welcome and will find much of interest, and also encourage them to submit talks!
