Throwing caution to the snow, Augsburg mathematics students Andy Hotchkiss (’20), Brandon Perez (’20), Heather Krumwiede (’19), and Lewis Istok(’19) presented at the 40th Annual Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honor Society Conference, April 12-13 at St. John’s University, Collegeville, MN. (https://www.csbsju.edu/mathematics/pi-conference)

Thanks to the support of URGO, the students were able to present their research: Curve Fitting of Periodically Repeating Functions (Hotchkiss/Perez), Comparative Study of Mathematical Middle School Texts Across Cultures (Krumwiede), and Spirographs for Fun and Pedagogy (Istok). The students were also able to meet and see two engaging presentations by the nationally-recognized speaker Dr. Talitha Washington from Howard University.
