Here are this week's problems of the week:

04/27/2016

As you probably guessed, we're changing our plans for tomorrow's picnic because of the weather. Instead of being at the park, we'll have an "indoor picnic" in the cafeteria on campus. I still hope you can join us! Please spread the word!

04/15/2016

This year's Math+ Alumni Day is scheduled for Wednesday, April 27. We'll have the alumni panel discussion in B203 from 3 to 4. We're planning on having a picnic at Lion's Coon Creek Park from 4 to 6. I hope you can join us! Please spread the word!

03/27/2015

Please let me know if you can participate in the panel discussion and/or if you think you'll be able to stop by at the picnic.

03/27/2015

This year's Math+ Alumni Day is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29, from 3 to 6. We'll start in the Legacy Room at 3:00. I hope you can join us for the panel discussion and/or the picnic! Spread the word!

What do we do at Math Alumni Day? Check out the flyer...

04/17/2014

Math Alumni Day is less than 2 weeks away now. On Wednesday, April 30th, we'll have our annual alumni panel discussion at 3:00. We'll follow that up with a picnic (I hope!) at Lions Coon Creek Park. Please plan on joining us for the panel, the picnic, or both!

02/05/2014

Here are two important upcoming dates:

Wednesday, March 26: STEM Chicks Panel Discussion (STEM Chicks is a new club on campus that is dedicated to supporting women who want to go into STEM fields)
Let me know if you're interested in participating!

Wednesday, April 30: Math Alumni Day

02/05/2014

Here's the new Problem of the Week:
A circle of radius 2 and center E is inscribed inside square ABCD. Find the area that is inside that triangle with vertices at A, B, and E, but outside of the circle.

Bonus question: If the square is inscribed in the circle, find the area outside of the triangle but inside the circle.

10/03/2013

Here is this week's Problem of the Week:
Airport runways are labeled by two numbers giving the nonnegative clockwise angles less than 360 degrees of the runway's direction measured from north to the nearest 10 degrees, divided by 10. Thus a runway with heading 223 degrees is labeled 22. What is the other number on this runway?

09/23/2013

Here's the next Problem of the Week:
A student committee must consist of 2 seniors and 3 juniors. Five seniors are available to serve on the committee. What is the least number of junior volunteers needed if the selectors want at least 600 different possible ways to pick the committee?

09/17/2013

With the start of the new school year, it's time for the first Math Team Problem of the Week. Here it is:
Each bag to be loaded onto a plane weighs either 12, 18, or 22 pounds. If the plane is carrying exactly 1000 pounds of luggage, what is the largest number of bags it could be carrying?

04/29/2013

Because it's looking like the weather isn't going to cooperate on Wednesday, we are moving the picnic part of Alumni Day to the college's cafeteria. The Panel Discussion will still be in B200. Please help me to spread the word. Thanks!

04/27/2013

Here's how the AMATYC Team Competition ended up this year:
1. Normandale 192.5 points
2. Anoka-Ramsey 186.5
3. North Hennepin 184.5

We were just 6 points short of winning it!

Individually, we had the 6th place finisher as well as the 10th place finisher in the state. Great job mathletes!

04/26/2013

Math Alumni Day is less than 1 week away! I’ve added another Alumni Panelist, so here’s what you have to look forward to:

One last thing for today: One of our mathletes is currently in 2nd place in the 10-state Central Region and our Math Team is also in 2nd place in the Central Region. The next AMATYC Exam is scheduled for Thursday, March 7th. If we do well on this, we could win the indvidual and team competitions! Please plan on taking the test if you can. Please help me to spread the word too.

Anoka-Ramsey's marketing and public relations department is looking for alumni to profile in its upcoming marketing materials. This would be a great way to bring some attention to the math department and other STEM departments. If you're interested, please let me know ASAP.

09/06/2012

Specifically, he's looking at taking STAT 5101, STAT 5102, STAT 5041, and Math 3283w at the U of M. Have any of you taken these courses?

09/06/2012

I've got a former student here who is majoring in electrical engineering. He can get a math minor if he takes 3 more math classes. Any thoughts or suggestions for him?

04/14/2012

Math Alumni Day is just days away now (Wednesday, April 18). The Alumni Panel is all set, but I always love to see as many alumni as possible, so please consider joining us. We'll be in B203 from 2 to 3 and the picnic will be ON THE COON RAPIDS CAMPUS (NOT the park where we've been before) from about 3:15 to 5:30 or 6. The picnic will be on the south side of campus near the biology department's greenhouse. Spread the word and bring a friend or two or three or ... !

03/01/2012

I'm still looking for alumni who are interested in coming back to campus on Wednesday, April 18th, for Math Alumni Day. The Panel Discussion will be from 2 to 3. The Picnic will be shortly thereafter. I'd love to see you at the Panel Discussion and/or the picnic, but I NEED to know if you can make it for the Panel. Please let me know ASAP if you're available. Also, please help spread the word!

Here are two more AMATYC Exam questions:
1. Each bag to be loaded onto a plane weighs either 12, 18, or 22 pounds. If the plane is carrying exactly 1000 pounds of luggage, what is the largest number of bags it could be carrying?
2. In triangle ABC, AB = AC = 25 and BC =14. The perpendicular distances from a point P in the interior of triangle ABC to each of the three sides are equal. Find this distance.
