|-||Spend some time with the images shown, which, according to the usual classification, have exactly the same symmetry type. Something seems different about the right-hand image: Why do the yellow/pink bowties seem to have mirror symmetry, which are not symmetries of the pattern as a whole? Why are they set at such strange angles relative to the orientation of the grid of red dots? These strange features led me to discover new types of symmetry in wallpaper patterns, with unexpected connections to such things as eigenvalues of a Laplacian and the length spectra of orbifolds.|

The BlueCross BlueShield team researched emergency department overutilization by analyzing claims information supplied by BCBS. By further analyzing the demographics and the reasons for visiting the emergency department, we were able to better understand the source of emergency department overutilization. Claims that were labeled “preventable” and could be attended to in non-emergency department settings were of particular interest to our research.

- Textbook Info: All sections of Calculus I and II (Math 120, 126, 128) will use Stewart's Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 7th ed. This is available in print as well as in ebook format. All sections of Linear Algebra (Math 220) will use Poole's Linear Algebra: A Modern Introduction, 3rd ed.
- AQR and Mathematics Placement Information: Please see the information to the left.
- Class of 2012: Among the 2012 graduates were 95 mathematics majors (the 2nd biggest major at the college this year), 31 statistics concentrators, and 13 computer science majors. Read about the students' post graduation plans. Congratulations to the students, parents, and faculty who helped this happen!
