Dear all,

There are three great events at NEIU that I encourage you to attend. Note that all these three events are free (and comes with a free lunch). Here are the information:

1) Women In Science, honoring women in Chemistry, on Thursday November 14. I will try to post the schedule soon. The day includes talks by Jing Su (NEIU), Sudha Srinivas (NEIU, her talks at the two previous Women In Science were awesome, and this is why we wanted to have her again this year), Anita Mehta (President and CEO of Chicago Discovery Solutions), Panel Discussion, Free Lunch, Art Exhibit, Science Hands-on Experiences (bring your kiddos), and a theatrical performance by Maria Boundas Bakali (NEIU Alumni).

2) NEIU 10th Annual Faculty Symposium, on Friday November 15. I will try to post the schedule soon. But I want to point out two talks by math faculty:

Zeke Zeng, Newtons's Iteration at Nonisolated Solutions, SU 217 at 10:20 am.

Emma Turian, Tumor Dynamics under Immunotherapy: A Time-Delay Revised Predator-Prey Model, SU 214 at 1:20 pm.

3) 15th Mathematical and Statistical Modeling of Complex Systems Workshop on Monday November 18 (Alumni Hall South) and Tuesday November 19 (BBH 102). The Modeling Workshop are organized by the Math Department. I will try to post the schedule soon. There will be various talks by NEIU faculty, NEIU students (graduate and undergraduate), and several faculty from the Warsaw School of Economics.

I very much encourage you to attend (whenever you can), especially the Modeling Workshop. Also, feel free to message me if you need extra information and/or have a question.

The Math Department would like to hire a math peer leader for the calculus II class this semester. The workshop runs Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:35-2:35pm. Please contact Sarah Cordell at [email protected] if you are interested. Thank you!

Hello everyone! We would appreciate it if you would encourage other NEIU community members to join this page so they can receive important STEM related announcements. Thank you!

We have a chess club that meets at 12 pm on Wednesdays in the cafeteria. The chess club is open to ALL (students, faculty, and staff). Currently, it consists of students and staff of NEIU. We have one Candidate Master, one National Master, some strong class players, some advanced beginners, and some beginners.

All levels are welcome! Whether you are an absolute beginner, World Champion Magnus Carlsen or somewhere in between. We have players near your level ready to give you a good game! 🙂. We play with AND without chess clocks.

The club is at 12 because that is when staff can take their lunch! 😉

TUTORING POSITION

Hello,

My name is Ellen Gutoske and I am writing to your on behalf of Pass With Flying Colors, a non-profit organization that supports first generation Chicago high school and college students at Northtown Academy (3900 West Peterson).

Our organization is currently looking for college students to volunteer as tutors to support our high school students during their study hall period.

Many of our students struggle with math and would benefit from 1:1 support.

Tutoring with our program can be counted towards service hours and gives students a chance to connect with high school students in the neighborhood on a very flexible schedule.

I wanted to reach out to see if you could assist me with this?

I would be happy to schedule a time to discuss this with you further. Otherwise, please feel free to forward my information along to interested students.

Best,
Ellen Gutoske

"The focus in calculus should be the measurable attributes, or quantities, involved in rates of change, not on tangent lines drawn on a graph. The tricks and associations we teach students provide them quick ways to draw inferences but leave them unable to understand the implications of these inferences on the quantities." Natalie Hobson, Sonoma State University, offers some exercises to help students develop deeper understandings in calculus, on the On Teaching and Learning Mathematics blog at http://bit.ly/2YlKp4L.

"My aim in communicating neuroscience widely is to help teachers share the important knowledge of brain growth and connectivity, and to teach mathematics as a creative and multi-dimensional subject that engages all learners. For it is only when we combine positive growth messages with a multi-dimensional approach to teaching, learning, and thinking, that we will liberate our students from fixed ideas, and from math anxiety, and set them free to learn and enjoy mathematics," writes Jo Boaler.

Most math classrooms feature a teacher lecturing and students quietly working on problems. But research shows that a different approach would lead to better results.

The Mathematics Department invites the university community to a lecture by Dr. Jason Siefken, Northwestern University, Department of Mathematics, on May 11 from 11:00 am-12:00 in the new Math Community Center, BBH 364.

Title: A Taste of Active Learning
Abstract: Active learning is the new, hip term in math teaching, but the idea is not new. This talk gives an introduction to several active learning techniques, why they're useful, and what it feels like to be in an active learning classroom. I will also highlight some of the lessons learned implementing active learning in different classrooms with different students and different techniques.

The Mathematics Department invites the university community to a lecture by Dr. Ross Sweet, Northwestern University, Department of Mathematics and Department of Statistics, on April 27 at 10:30 am in the new Math Community Center, BBH 364.

Title: Reflections on Peer-Assisted Reflection
Abstract:
In a first-year single variable calculus course at Northwestern University, we implemented an assessment model to emphasize mathematical writing. Based on the work of Daniel Reinholz, Peer-Assisted Reflection (PAR) problems give students the opportunity to write, reflect on, and revise solutions to challenging problems. In this talk, we will investigate the structure of PAR assignments and the process of developing students' peer evaluation skills. We will also discuss the pedagogical motivation for PAR, student outcomes, and the use of PAR as a professional development resource for graduate student teaching assistants.
