Applications are currently being accepted for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME); the deadlines are April 1 and November 1, respectively. The applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so I encourage interested students to apply early, using our website bsmeducation.com.

BSME is a semester-long program in Budapest, Hungary, designed for undergraduates and recent graduates interested in the learning and teaching of secondary mathematics. Participants will study the Hungarian approach to learning and teaching, in which a strong and explicit emphasis is placed on problem solving, mathematical creativity, and communication. BSME is specifically intended for students who are not only passionate about mathematics, but also the teaching of mathematics.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office, either by email (bsme@bsmeducation.com) or by phone (507-786-3821).

Registration is open for the 2017 Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium and Annual Meeting of the Minnesota Academy of Science (MAS)! It will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Olin-Rice Science Center on the Macalester College campus. Go to http://www.mnmas.org/annual-meeting/annual-meeting-winchell-undergraduate-research-symposium for more information.

Since 2008, over 900 students representing 27 undergraduate colleges and universities have presented their research at the symposium, and we hope you will send some this year! Registration is $75 for both students and faculty.

There are four main components of the event: a keynote lecture, oral presentations, breakout sessions and poster presentations. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Lunch occurs between oral presentations and breakout sessions.

Each attendee must register him or herself. The system cannot process mass registrations from institutions.

You must complete all registration questions in one sitting, as the system does not save work in progress, only completed applications.

*Be sure to have the following information when you register:
*1) your advisor's name and email address,
2) whether you'll be doing an oral or poster presentation, and
3) your presentation title and abstract.

If you think your institution is paying your registration fee, verify that in advance and when you register, you must provide us with the name, title and email address of the person who approved payment.

NSF funded REU Site on PDEs and Dynamical Systems at Florida Institute of Technology.

FIT REU is designed to involve undergraduate students in innovative research in nonlinear partial differential equations, optimal control and inverse problems for systems with distributed parameters, and dynamical systems and chaos theory. The goal of the REU Site is to equip students with intuitional and rigorous proof skills which allow them to tackle cutting-edge open problem in mathematics.

Currently we are collecting applications for the anticipated REU 2017 summer site. Application portal and more information about the FIT REU Site can be found in the following link: http://math.reu.fit.edu

MUDAC 2017 to be held April 1-2, 2017 at Winona State University

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Winona State University will host the Midwest Undergraduate Data Analytics Competition (MUDAC) 2017 on April 1-2, 2017. MUDAC continues to grow each year. MUDAC brings together students, faculty mentors, and professional data analysts for an exciting 24-hour competition. MUDAC consists of teams of undergraduate students from around the Midwest who are given 24 hours to solve an analytics problem motivated by our corporate sponsor. Teams share their recommendations with representatives from our corporate sponsor and other professional data analysts. MUDAC 2017 will continue to expand upon the networking opportunities between the professional data analysts in attendance and your students.

Faculty mentors from each participating institution are strongly encouraged to attend. Teams will be able to seek advice from their on-site faculty advisors throughout the competition.
