Students Gain Honors for Mathematics Department

Students Andrew Snyder-Beattie and Kevin Groat won an “Outstanding Presentation” award at Mathfest, the national meeting of the Mathematical Association of America. This year, there were over 150 student talks at the meeting and the MAA gave only 20 awards. Their project, “Geometric Brownian Motion, a Safe Assumption?” was completed as part of the Summer Science Institute under the direction of Dr. Julius Esunge. This is a significant achievement for both the students and the faculty advisor. Several faculty from other schools came up to Keith Mellinger after the presentation requesting details about the successful program at UMW.
