Have a safe, enjoyable and restful Spring Break!
The Answer is Blowin' in the Wind
Climate change is definitely a hot topic (no pun intended) and the debate can be lively, at least in political circles. However, consensus may be on the way, thanks to statistics. In a paper published last December in the SIAM Journal on Uncertainty Quantification authors Matthew Heaton, Tamara Greasby, and Stephen Sain propose a statistical model that consolidates climate change information from observation-based data sets and climate models. Their model allows the final data product to provide an aggregate measure of climate rather than be restricted to individiual weather data sets.
In a paper published last December in the SIAM Journal on Uncertainty Quantification, authors Matthew Heaton, Tamara Greasby, and Stephan Sain propose a statistical hierarchical Bayesian model that consolidates climate change information from observation-based data sets and climate models.

A Möbius Gecko??
What does a Möbius strip and a tessellated gecko have in common?
Well for the lucky Mitchell Elementary students who attended the annual Mitchell Elementary Math & Science Night, the common factor was the CSM Math Club. Several club members volunteered their evening by talking with 1st through 6th graders about everything from Möbius strips, to tessallations to normal distribution curves. By all reports the students (elementary AND college) had a great time!
