The Joy of Flying

Will we ever get out of here?

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics estimate that 91% of long-distance holiday travel is done by personal vehicle and that only 5-6% by air.  However, of that 5-6%, my guess is that 100% of the travelers wished they could have boarded quicker.  "We can put a man on the moon but we can't get me in my seat with luggage stored any faster!?!?"

I bet you're thinking "I'm good at Tetris®.  I know I could load this plane better!"  If that is the case, check out the mathematics in optimizing the boarding process here.

Congatulations to Becky Swanson

Congratulations to Prof. Becky Swanson as one of the joint recipients of the 2015 Martin Luther King Jr. Recognition Award.

Becky co-developed the Society for Women in Mathematics (SWiM) - a program designed to create a community of support for female faculty and students.  In addition to holding leadership positions in several AMS programs that have and will directly impact our majors, Becky serves as a role model who encourages other females, and all students, to participate in a variety of the AMS activities available to them.


Congratulations Becky for a job well done!
