Mathematics Students Present at Joint Mathematics Meetings, Lawhorne Earns Recognition

In January three mathematics majors presented their research at the annual AMS-MAA Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore, Md., which is the largest mathematics conference in the world. Kim Hildebrand presented “Using Independent Bernoulli Random Variables to Model Gender Hiring Practices” (advisor:  Dr. Debra Hydorn), Casey Howren presented “A Numerical Analysis of the SIR Model for Modeling Epidemics” (advisor:  Dr. Leo Lee), and Dane Lawhorne presented “The Fundamental Groups of the Digital Line and Circles” (advisor:  Dr. Randall Helmstutler). The students presented as part of the MAA’s undergraduate student poster session, and Dane Lawhorne was given special recognition as an outstanding presenter in the session.
