Announcement from the Chair

University of Illinois at Chicago

Dear Colleagues,
Hello!  I hope you have had a rewarding summer. I have, and I now wait for an extra exciting beginning of a school year with a baby due Aug. 31.  I wish the best year for all.
Our spring meeting March 2016 at Franklin College where we celebrated Indiana Section's centennial was very enjoyable, with highlights including the following:  29 schools competing in the student competition where the first and second place teams' scores differed by a single point; a cake reception; a panel on alternative assessment; an impressive magician; and many interesting talks, including talks on Indiana mathematics history.
I invite you to our fall meeting Saturday Oct. 8, 2016, at Purdue University, West Lafayette, for a mathematically star-studded line-up. MAA Pólya Lecturer Ken Ono, of number theory fame and recently the mathematical consultant and associate producer for the movie "The Man Who Knew Infinity" based on the life of genius Ramanujan, will talk on "Gems of Ramanujan and their Lasting Impact on Mathematics."   Past MAA Pólya Lecturer Lou Kauffman who works in knot theory and its relationships with statistical mechanics, quantum theory, algebra, combinatorics, and foundations, will talk on "Topology, Quaternions, and Octonions."
The deadline for early registration is Friday, September 23.
I invite you to submit a talk for the fall meeting.  The deadline for submission is also Friday, September 23. I also invite you to look into the College Visitors Program where the Section will pay for a visitor to give a talk at your institution. All information for the fall meeting, the College Visitors Program, and more, is found at .
I thank Alain Togbe (Purdue University Northwest) for the excellent job as Chair of the section this past school year. In addition to the spring meeting mentioned above, we enjoyed a wonderful fall meeting at Purdue University North Central (now a part of Purdue University Northwest).  I also thank the rest of the section's executive board: Andy Rich, Vice Chair; Alex Capaldi, Treasurer; Haseeb Kazi, Secretary; Alain Togbe, Past Chair; John Lorch, Governor; Paul Fonstad, Student Activities Coordinator; and Josh Holden, Public Information Officer.  I thank many more that serve the section, including David Housman heading up our College Visitors Program, Melissa Lindsey leading Indiana's Section NExT (New Experiences in Teaching), William Turner editing our newsletter, Adam Coffman editing meeting abstracts, and historian and assistant historian Rick Gillman and Lauren Decker, respectively.  Thanks to all!
The executive board welcome comments. Feel free to contact me at
I look forward to seeing you all.  Have a wonderful start to your year!
