March 24 at UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: March 8, 1999|
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire mathematics department will sponsor the eighth annual UW-Eau Claire Mathematics Retreat on Wednesday, March 24.
On that day, special faculty, student and guest speaker presentations will replace all university mathematics classes.
Mathematics faculty and students will make presentations about special topics in mathematics between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. in Hibbard Hall. Presentations will be made at levels appropriate for undergraduate mathematics students, high school faculty and some well-prepared high school students.
This year's distinguished mathematical visitor will be Dr. Myron Ginsberg, who currently is a consultant to various corporations and academic institutions. In the past, he has taught and done research for the military and private industry. He has a bachelor's degree from Boston University, a master's degree from Clark University and a doctorate from the University of Iowa.
Ginsberg's first talk, titled "Pitfalls in Evaluating High-Performance Computers for Scientific and Engineering Applications," will begin at 2 p.m. in room 102 of Hibbard Hall. A reception for all participants will follow at 3:15 p.m. in the Hibbard Hall Penthouse.
His second presentation, titled "Increasing the Half-life of a Scientific/Engineering Professional: A Career Guide to Survivability in the Next Century," will begin at 7 p.m. in room 101 of Hibbard Hall.
All events associated with the Mathematics Retreat are free and open to the public. Area teachers and students are invited to attend.
