A large group from our mathematics department attended the Louisiana Mississippi Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Section Meeting at Loyola University in New Orleans on 27-29 February 2020.
The UL Lafayette teams did very well in the Student Team Competition. The team consisting of Andrew Bayard, Maxwell Kane, Grace Sternaman, and Madi Angerdina placed first! The team consisting of Lance Myers, Edward Babin, Jacob Echols, and Nicholas Henderson placed third. Ross Chiquet served as faculty advisor for both teams.
In the student paper/presentation competition, Maxwell Kane placed first and C. Andrew Bayard placed second. Ross Chiquet and Amy Veprauskas supervised Maxwell Kane's research, Ross Chiquet and Logan Perry supervised Andrew Bayard's research.
