Twenty Lee University students attended the annual Undergraduate Math Conference at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Fourteen of the attending students presented their research at the conference. 

Students attended the conference with Lee’s associate professors of mathematics Dr. Debra Gladden, Dr. Richard Moy, Dr. Jason Schmurr, and Dr. Laura Singletary. 

“Mentoring these students through research has been such a rewarding experience,” said Dr. Gladden. “Their creativity, hard work, and presentation were impressive and we are so proud of them.” 

Students who presented include Ky’Anna Arthurton, Abby Baucom, Amy Carpenter, Blayne Carroll Jr, Nicolette Gordon, Emily Horner, John Iluno, Ethan Large, Madison Mabe, Connor O’Ryan, Rebekah Petrosky, Moises Ponce, Kinlee Pruitt, and Chase Toomey. 

The students were divided into two separate groups. Students from the Applied and Industrial math class worked on an electrochemistry problem in order to determine when a lithium ion battery will explode, while students from the Introduction to Research class focused on proof and argumentation in a college math course for teachers. 

Presentations included topics such as “The Role of Proof Schemes in Preparing Future Educators,” “Modeling Impedance Change in a Simulated Lithium Ion Battery,” and “Visualizing the Conceptions Within Proof.”
