What's Your Phone Number?

Sequential memory requires items to be recalled in a specific order.  It's the type of memory that we rely on to say the days of the week, recite the alphabet or remember our phone number.  To better understand how sequential memory works, physicist Mikhail Rabinovich at the University of California, San Diego built mathematical models that mimic sequential memory.  He and a group of researchers have now mathematically modeled how the mind switches among different ways of thinking about a sequence of objects.  This model could be used to better understand a variety of psychiatric disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder.

For more information on sequential memory and this researcher's work, check out their article in Chaos: An interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science

Congratulations Becky Swanson

Congratulations to Teaching Associate Professor Rebecca Swanson.   Becky is the recipient of the 2016 Early Career Teaching Award from the Rocky Mountain Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA).  The award will be presented to Dr. Swanson at the 2016 Joint Meeting of the Intermountain and Rocky Mountain Sections of the MAA on April 8, in Grand Junction, Colorado. The award recognizes faculty members that are early in their career and excel in teaching at the undergraduate level, as well as have a demonstrated influence outside their own classrooms.
