One Rambler grad student gave it his best shot. Quang Nguyen, currently studying applied statistics at Loyola University Chicago, was asked by ABC Sports to statistically predict the next Brownlow Medal winner of Australian rules football. Don't know anything about the sport? Neither did he.
Loyola's Math & Stat Club is offering drop-in tutoring this year every Monday and Thursday from 7pm-9pm in the STEM Center (now located in Saint Joseph’s Hall). If you are a student looking for assistance with your math or stat class, be sure to take advantage of this fantastic resource.
Bob Moses, math education innovator and civil rights icon, has passed away.
Through his Algebra Project, he advocated an innovative approach to mathematics to appeal to poor minority children, and to accommodate a variety of learning styles. A main focus of the project is about demanding rigorous education in low-income communities, where children are typically tracked into remedial classes.
At the close of this most difficult academic year, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics wishes to recognize all of our COVID-19 students' outstanding achievements—not to mention perseverance and bravery—especially our graduates. Congrats!
