The University of Richmond's mathematics program provides students the opportunity to study the science of number, quantity and space, including applications to other fields.
Congratulations to this year's award winners:
Crump Prize: Fiona LynchOutstanding Student Award: David Clayton
Eppes Scholarship: Isabel Benvenuti
Lawrence Scholarship: Rhiannon Begley
Devika Jhunjhunwala ‘19, Shuyi Chen ‘18, Quinn McDonough ’18, received an “Outstanding Poster” designation at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in January. Their poster, Concussion Detection Using Graph Theory and Logistic Regression, represented their research with Dr. Kathy Hoke and Dr. Joanna Wares.
Math professors Joanna Wares (far left) and Heather Russell (third from right) teamed up with colleagues to perform a song at this year's Association for Women in Mathematics reception that celebrated women's contributions to the field of mathematics. Way to go ladies!
