Math Teaching Assistants Win Campus Wide Awards

Two of our talented Math graduate students have been honored with campus-wide teaching awards.

Soumya Sankar has won the Exceptional Service Award and Di Fang has won the Capstone Ph.D. Teaching Award. 

Of over 2000 teaching assistants on campus, these two were honored among a class of 13 others for their contributions to the classroom, lab, and field teaching contributions. 

We are thrilled at the recognition by campus of our promising graduate students and their outstanding teaching!

Erman, Sam, Ellenberg Mentions in the Bulletin of the AMS this month.

Two of the four articles published this month in the Bulletin of the American Mathematics Society have UW connections.  Daniel Erman and former faculty, Steven Sam, have an article titled "Cubics in 10 variables vs. cubics in 1000 variables: Uniformity phenomena for bounded degree polynomials".  Jordan Ellenberg has been involved in work related to what Joshua Grochow published "New applications of the polynomial method: The cap set conjecture and beyond".
