Andrea Young, four students present at national convention

Andrea Young, assistant professor of mathematics and computer science, and four students — Erin Frassetto ’17 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Michael Gableman ’16 of Greendale, Wisconsin; Tyler Shimek ’16 of Greendale, Wisconsin; and Lincoln Wurtz ’17 of Ripon, Wisconsin — attended the Center for Undergraduate Research in Math/Intermountain Section of the Math Association of America spring meeting at Brigham Young University. All of them gave talks.

Frassetto and Gableman gave the talk “Numerical Analysis of Triangulated Piecewise-flat 3-manifolds.” Shimek and Wurtz gave the talk “A Conformal Structure on Triangulated Piecewise-flat 3-manifolds.” Young presented “Improvisation in the Mathematics Classroom.”

The students were among 46 undergraduates from around the country to have participated in this year’s CURM program, which provided funding for them to do research all year. “Our students really stood out in their ability to confidently give well-crafted talks — great to see the value of a Ripon education in action,” Young says.
