Gerrymanderi & Geometry

Following the 2020 United States Census, congressional representation will be re-apportioned among the states. Then congressional districts within each state must be re- drawn. Gerrymandering is the process of manipulating district boundaries to favor a particular outcome of an election. In order to prevent gerrymandering, most states require that electoral districts are compact. However, compactness is rarely defined. We will discuss different strategies used to gerrymander. Then we will examine how mathematics can be used to measure compactness and detect gerrymandering.

Mathematical Relationships in Chemistry

Math is a daily component of every chemist’s existence.  Trends in our field, particularly the emerging roles of big data and data science, make a fundamental understand- ing of math even more important in our careers.  However, for a student of chemistry, math can become a daunting obstacle when trying to connect a mathematical calculation to its chemical meaning.  We will discuss common student stumbling blocks seen across standard chemistry curriculum including mathematical-chemical relationships in reaction kinetics, biological buffers, and the molecular absorption of light. We hope to provide a platform for discussion that can support mathematical understanding for chemistry majors and potential mathematics applications for math students.

Exploring Egyptian Fractions

Ancient Egyptian cultures expressed fractions using (distinct) unit fractions. For example they might have written 2/5 = 1/3 + 1/15. In addition to having practical applications for fair division problems, this interesting way of writing fractions raises many interesting mathematical questions which we will explore:

- How do you write a "regular" fraction as an Egyptian fraction?

- Can you write every fraction as an Egyptian fraction?

- How many unit fractions do you need to express 4/n for an arbitrary whole number n?

Lessons Learned from Writing Math

Teachers spend hours crafting lesson plans that strike a balance between procedural fluency, conceptual understanding, and application in mathematics. However, when it comes to assessments, they are often collecting very limited information about what their students know. During this presentation we'll learn how an SSU graduate is working with local schools and districts to improve assessment practices by providing students with opportunities to problem solve, reason, and model with mathematics.

Euler’s Formula and The Birth of Topology

In this talk I would like to illustrate the underlying philosophy and goals of algebraic topology by looking at a specific example in its historical context. Euler’s polyhedral formula is often considered to be one of the first theorems of algebraic topology and its underlying idea gave birth to the philosophy that drives algebraic topology. I will begin by explaining in broad terms what the goals of topology are. Then I’ll cover a bit of history to place Euler’s formula in its appropriate context. We’ll explore and generalize Euler’s formula and finally, we’ll use the generalization to study two-dimensional objects called surfaces. This talk is intended to be accessible and interesting for undergraduates at all levels.

Reasoning and Proofs in School Mathematics

Communities of mathematics education agree that reasoning and proofs are essential aspects of school mathematics, but many people still remember that their mathematics learning was memorizing unrelated formulas and regurgitating answers to given problems. Some argue that mathematics beyond basic operations is useless in real life andmathematics should not be required for all students. In this talk, I will discuss how reasoning skills progress toward proofs in school mathematics and how to integrate mathematical proofs in teaching without the burden of formality and rigor. Finally, I will discuss the role of teachers in promoting reasoning and proofs so that their students can understanding mathematics better.

School of Social Sciences Brown Bag Series Presents, Matthew Paolucci Callahan

In the year 2017 alone, 14 states have introduced legislation aimed to restrict transgender people’s access to public restrooms. Such laws require that trans people use restrooms that correspond with their biological sex rather than preferred gender identity. Despite the increase in such “bathroom bills”, research examining people’s perceptions of trans people in public restrooms is scarce. This talk will present research on people’s perceptions transgender women and men in public restrooms, including the extent to which essentialism and trait aggression exacerbate these reactions.

Math Colloquium: Native American-based Mathematics Materials for Integration Into Undergraduate Courses

Charles P. Funkhouser, PI, and Patrick Weasel Head, Tribal Cultural Liaison, California State University, Fullerton

Our project has developed and researched undergraduate mathematics materials based in the culture and mathematics of Native American Peoples for integration into undergraduate courses. Mathematics topics include probability and statistics, number theory, transformational geometry, calculus, and pre-service elementary and secondary education-relate content. These materials—both paper and electronic—are classroom ready, and are developed and piloted in consultation with Tribes in the Rocky Mountains, the Plains, the Pacific Northwest, and the Southwest. We are currently beginning new culturally-based efforts with other Tribes and mathematicians throughout the U.S., as well as broadening the lesson content domain into all areas of STEM. This work is an NSF DUE-funded project.

People Don’t Get that Worked Up about Racist Indian & Asian Stuff

An interactive presentation by Dr. Drew Ishii

12-1 pm & 1:30-2:30 pm Cooperage 3

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are often labeled as the “model minority” where they are unfairly generalized and stereotyped, which means that their actual experiences and identity are rendered invisible or invalid. In each session, we will explore the complexities and invisibility that people with AAPI heritage encounter in society.

Dr. Drew Ishii earned his PhD in Math Education at The Ohio State University. A former teacher educator, Drew currently teaches at Sage Hill School, an independent high school. As a diversity practitioner, he has facilitated AAPI affinity groups, spoken at national and international conferences, and trained faculty in diversity issues.

Light refreshments will be served!
