Math students help with BugFest
"Math Doesn't Bug Me" was a big success at BugFest at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh on Sept. 19. Undergrad and grad students from the Math Department and the Center for Research in Scientific Computation led interactive math activities and presented posters on their research. The organizers were Lorena Bociu, Steven Derochers, and Shira Polster. Kudos to everyone involved!
NC State grad John Storey wins prestigious statistics award
John Storey, a 1998 honors graduate in mathematics and valedictorian,
