Mathematics student Hayley Hutson had the chance to present at the biennial National Convention of Kappa Mu Epsilon (KME), the National Mathematics Honor Society. The convention was held April 6-8 in Springfield.
“I got to give a presentation on the research I did this summer with Dr. Rebaza and Savannah Bates—from Jacksonville University—on stability analysis of a model of Zika virus,” said Hutson. “Presenting was nerve-wrecking. It was the largest crowd I’ve ever presented to, and public speaking is not my forte, but I think it went well.”
There were several workshops at the convention, ranging from R programming to origami to mathematical art.
