Events and news of what's happening around the Fredonia campus.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences will celebrate its 24th consecutive Pi Day with a tribute to “Fredonia Rogers,” aka SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor Robert Rogers.

Three students majoring in a STEM discipline have been recommended by SUNY Fredonia to apply for a Barry Goldwater Scholarship valued at $7,500 to help them pursue a research career in the natural sciences, mathematics or engineering.

The 23rd Pi Day celebration at the State University of New York at Fredonia is slated for Thursday, March 9 on campus.

The welcome mat will be rolled out during Homecoming, including on Friday afternoon, Oct. 14, for the dedication of the renovated and redesigned Houghton Hall that completes the transformation of STEM education at SUNY Fredonia.

“This is hands-on labor and the projects are unique, challenging and often messy – just like science and math.” That’s the guiding approach of Department of Mathematical Sciences Professor Keary Howard to learning activities he creates for Camp COMETS.

Camp COMETS, a four-day camp designed to introduce talented middle school students to advanced concepts in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in fun, creative and exciting ways, will be held at SUNY Fredonia on Aug. 8 to 11.

“Billy 'Pi'dol Presents a Nice Day for a Pi Wedding” is the theme of the 22nd Pi Day Celebration to be staged by the Department of Mathematical Sciences on Thursday, March 10, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., in McEwen Hall Room 209.

For the 21st consecutive year, Fredonia’s Department of Mathematical Sciences will celebrate Pi Day, albeit with a virtual twist this time, on Thursday, March 11, at 6 p.m., a little more than three days (actually, 3.14 days) prior to the real 2021 Pi Day on Sunday, March 14.

How the field of data science and analytics has developed will be reviewed in the presentation “Data Science and Analytics Opportunities in Academia and Industry Across Disciplines” by Dr. Joaquin Carbonara, a research professor of Mathematics at SUNY Buffalo State, on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at noon.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences recently held its annual awards banquet, honoring outstanding achievements in the field of mathematics.
