Frank Morgan's Math Chat
March 29, 2000
EXTRA EDITION of MATH CHAT
The award comes from ecalculus.org, based at the University of California at Davis and Williams College. Head judge Professor Frank Morgan of Williams College awarded the prize to Beeneet at a special assembly at his school today (March 29). Beeneet was nominated by mathematics teacher Alan Blayne.
Runners up, Andrew Aymeloglu (Emmaus High School, Pennsylvania), Devlyn Brown (Vero Beach High School, Florida), Mabel Feng (Colleyville Heritage High School, Texas), Desire Hakizimana (New Brunswick High School, New Jersey), and Po-Shen Loh (James Madison Memorial High School, Madison, Wisconsin), as well as Beeneet, receive Scientific Notebook donated by MacKichan Software.
Although the winner this year was a young man, about one third of the nominees were young women. Incidentally, the top calculus student at Williams College this year was a young woman.
