YSU MathFest students excel again at national event

Youngstown State University mathematics students presented research at the annual MathFest meeting in Denver, taking home two awards for excellence and winning the problem solving contest.

“Our students continue to give outstanding presentations,” said Thomas Wakefield, professor and chair of Mathematics and Statistics. “They serve as examples at this national meeting of the exceptional students in the STEM College and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at YSU.”

In all, 10 YSU students attended MathFest, the summer meeting of the Mathematical Association of America and Pi Mu Epsilon.

Anthony Dickson of McDonald, who presented research titled “The Prime Number Theorem: A Historical Look at How Mathematicians Proved It” and Samuel Delatore of Poland, whose research is titled “A Not-So-Fair Guessing Game and the Math Behind It”, earned awards of excellence in student exposition and research.

Delatore and Rabin Thapa from Dhading, Nepal, were both invited to participate in the Student Problem Solving Competition. Delatore won the competition, while Rabin finished in fifth place.
