Students Participate in the Summer Research Symposium


Students Attend the Jersey Shore University Med Center’s 2018 Research Day

Samantha Cavalli (MA/Stat), Alexandria Halloran (MA/Stat) and Peri Trembley (HS/Stat Minor) attended the  Jersey Shore University Med Center’s 2018 Research Day. All are part of Dr. Bastian’s  SRP group. They were invited by JSUMC’s biostatisticians for the purpose of seeing real world biostatistics in a research hospital setting. They heard 7 speakers and viewed  posters on medical research with statistical analyses. Afterwards the biostatisticians sat with them for about an hour answering questions and discussing biostatistics as a career.

Annual Math Day (April 23, 2018)

We invited students from Bay Head Middle School to come for the day to learn about mathematics,  work on interesting problems, and tour Monmouth.  A special thanks to Maria Wills and Lauren Galarza for bringing their wonderful students.  We had a great time!


Students Attend the Annual NCTM Conference

Matt Vazzana and Bryanna Roos attended the annual NCTM conference in Washington DC this May with Professor Zak.  They had a great time. 

“Matt and I had such a great experience at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics conference. Each day we were introduced to new skills and knowledge that we can bring into our future classrooms. The conference provided us with strategies to effectively incorporate technology in lessons, integrate literature in a math classroom, as well as new approaches for teaching students topics such as fractions and quadratic equations. Being immersed with inservice teachers and math specialists from around the country gave us valuable insight of being a teacher, which was very exciting! We are very grateful to have been given this opportunity and for the benefits of being NCTM members. ” — Bryanna
