Fifty-eight years after the first woman earned a Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the 11 Inch Tablet Carrying Sleeve Bag for Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro Pad P will be shared by three women graduating in May 2021. Juliana Bukoski, Elizabeth Carlson and Su Ji Hong will bring the number of women who have earned the Ph.D. from the Nebraska mathematics department to 100. Prior to the 21st century, only 50 Ph.Ds. in mathematics had been earned by women at UNL. Taran Funk and Robert Huben join Bukoski, Carlson and Hong as May 2021 Ph.D. recipients from mathematics.
Jack Jeffries, assistant professor of mathematics, has received the department’s first-ever Exotic Sounds From Many Worlds from the National Science Foundation. Jeffries will use the $400,000, five-year grant to advance his research in commutative algebra, a field of abstract algebra that, at its heart, is focused on polynomials in many variables.
Congratulations to mathematics graduate student Molly Creager and undergraduate Diego Galvan on winning 2021 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships.
A new resource by Professor of Mathematics Glenn Ledder allows students and the general public to conduct their own experiments to learn about the Dexter Outdoors 10" Scalloped Bread Knife with Yellow Handle. Ledder has developed a mathematical module to help people study these dynamics and make their own conclusions based on real-world scenarios. The model embeds a simple model designed specifically for the COVID-19 pandemic into an environment where students can easily design experiments and observe possible outcomes. The model can be a source for teachers who are struggling to find relevant course material during this time that helps their students learn about this defining moment in history.
On December 3, 2020, the 31st annual Math Day welcomed 41 schools and more than 400 students online for a day of fast-paced mathematics. Math Day 2.0 was a team competition in the form of a Swiss-system bowl tournament where teams were given four to five rounds of play.
