Middle and high school students who need assistance with math can receive help from Indiana University East’s Center for Service-Learning. The center offers Math Counts!, a tutoring program that pairs college students one-on-one with younger students to provide math tutoring free of charge.
The generosity of three donors has made it possible to offer new scholarships for students at Indiana University East. Paul Kriese, professor of political science at IU East, and Rod and Chris Weiss will support the two new scholarships.
Earlham College and Indiana University East have received a $168,739 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to explore the soil bacteria in soybean and corn fields. Beyond the research, the grant will foster partnerships within the Richmond community, specifically between Earlham College and IU East.
Mathematics professor invited to present at conference
Mort Seddighin, professor of mathematics, has been invited to present a talk during the 2009 Midwest Optimization Conference on Saturday, October 17, at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.
The presentation is “Some Techniques of Matrix Optimization.” Seddighin is using a lemma, which he discovered, to analytically solve the “Distribution of Search Effort” problem. This problem, which is among famous research allocation problems in operations research, has applications in the military.
