Our own Statistical Crime Fighter!
Congratulations to our own Prof. Amanda Hering who was recently published in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society for her research on serial crime offenders. Mandy, along with Sean Bair, focused on crimes committed by the same individual, investigating the spatial and chronological choices that serial offenders made with respect to the locations that all crimes of a given type occur within a city. Her work in spatial statistics could be used by criminal analysts to study criminal behavior and possibly prevent future crimes from occuring.

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!
