Join us for our first colloquium of the year to learn about the scholarly activities of several faculty members from the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Friday, August 24, at 3 PM in 103A Walker.
To begin, Dr. Joel Sanqui will pose some open problems in probability and statistics which may be of interest to students.
Dr. Bill Cook will describe Fuch’s problem pertaining to when a group can appear as the group of units of a ring, what a Leibniz algebra is, and how their theory differs from the theory of Lie algebras.
In the area of mathematics education, Mr. John Sevier will examine problems developmental mathematics students design based on their personal experiences as they engage in problem posing.
Finally, Dr. Katie Mawhinney will provide a report on efforts to develop a calculus support course within the department.
