Maple Scholars 2008

Jason and Gina converse with another student at the IU Conference.

Mathematics majors Gina Richard and Jason Yoder worked with David Housman on Maple Scholars projects.  Gina explored monotonic power indices and Jason explored automated intelligent play of coalition games.

Maple Scholars is an eight-week summer program that gives students the opportunity to participate in independent research projects alongside Goshen College faculty of various disciplines.   Scholars keep each other informed of their progress in weekly seminars, and the program ends with a celebration involving a public poster session, presentations, and a dinner.  Gina and Jason also presented their work during the 2008 Indiana Undergraduate Mathematics Research Conference held at Indiana University Bloomington and the 2008 MathFest held in Madison, Wisconsin.

Gina’s and Jason’s final reports can be accessed from David Housman’s Undergraduate Research Page.
