Math/Stat Moments

Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Martin Gardner (1914 - 2010)

No Mathematical Moments would be complete without a discussion about Martin Gardner.  His Scientific American "Mathematical Games" columns, which ran from 1956 to 1981, are probably responsible for many of us being mathematicians.  Last year was his centennial year, so it is only appropriate to include some links to his works.


1. The Top Ten Martin Gardner Scientific American Articles

2. Can You Solve a Puzzle Unsolved Since 1996?

3. Articles Alluded to in "Let the Games Continue"

4. Three Puzzles from Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Thanks for everything Martin!

Spotlight on AMS

Congratulations Majors!

Five of our own attended the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM) this year.  A big congratulations especially goes out to Taylor Chott, Kownoon Her, Sujee Park and Sarah Verros.  Each of these students presented posters at the conference.  Kelsey Kalmbach, a presenter last year, was also able to attend.

The NCUWM is held each year and is open to outstanding undergraduate women mathematicians at all stages in their careers.  The overall goal of the conference is to arm participants with knowledge, self-confidence, and a network of peers to help them become successful mathematicians.

A big way to go to each of these ladies who are well on their way in becoming successful majors and successful mathematicians!
