Michael Pernice

Michael Pernice from Idaho National Labs talked to REU students about
working at a national lab, and emerging area of scientific computing
and engineering.


Wednesday morning students met with their groups and worked diligently!

After lunch Michelle Chamberlin spoke with the students about mathematics education and her job as an assistant professor at UW. The students asked many good questions about research, teaching and service. The session ended with some examples of dividing fractions and just how complicated it can be to explain "invert and multiply" to students.

Now students are again working on their projects hopefully preparing for their presentations tomorrow afternoon! We look forward to seeing where the groups are now.
