USC Mathematics faculty members and students attended the Mathematical Society of the Philippines (MSP) Cebu Research Congress and Convention at the DepEd Ecotech Center in Sudlon, Lahug last December 2-3, 2016. It is organized by MSP Cebu Chapter headed by the convention chair, Carmelita Loquias, Chair of the Department of Mathematics.
Different researches of different fields (Algebra, Graph Theory, Combinatorics, Analysis, Math Education, and Statistics) from all over the country were presented in parallel sessions either in oral or poster presentation during the convention. Among the presenters were three BS Math students, six MS Math students, and six faculty members.
Clive Martin G. Chan, Math graduating student, was awarded best research paper in the field of Algebra with his paper entitled “The Collatz Conjecture and Integers of the form form 2^k-1 and 2^(k-1) (2^k-1) for k A Natural Number”.
Also, Dr. Rodulfo Aunzo, Jr. delivered the plenary talk on “Technology-Advantaged Mathematics Teaching-Learning Process: CASIO fx-570EX Model”.
