Epidemiology, equilibria, and ebola : a dynamical analysis
In order to understand the forces that drive outbreaks such as the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the force of infection must be broken down into a system of di erential equations. With the current understanding of ... 
Active learning in the secondary mathematics classroom : the effect on student learning
Across the United States, secondary mathematics has been struggling to be at the standard in which government leaders in education think it should be. Active learning has been a strategy that many educators have been ... 
Three easy pieces (etudes for calculus and complex variables)
This talk described three unrelated topics in calculus: (1) how Vieta's formula for pi using nested square roots of 2 could be dramatically accelerated; (2) how the chain rule in calculus, for functions from R to R or C ... 
NewtonCotes Integration for Approximating Stieltjes (Generalized Euler) Constants
In the Laurent expansion ζ(s,α)= 1/(s1) + ∞ ∑ κ=0 (1)κγκ(α)/κ! (s1)κ, 0 < α ≤ 1 of the RiemannHurwitz zeta function, the coefficients γκ(α) are known as Stieltjes, or generalized Euler, constants. [When α = 1, ζ(s, 1) ...
