    Begin with any positive integer n. Write it as the sum of two smaller positive integers, say a and b. Compute the product ab. Repeat the same step in any order for each of the smaller numbers a and b. Continue this ...

    Elliptic Curves will be explored from a mathematical perspective as well as from a cryptographic perspective, where they have important applications to modern information security. We will address what elliptic curves ...
  • Maureen Moran (Keene State College, 04/11/2015)
    Nathaniel Bowditch (1773-1838) was an American mathematician who pulled himself out of a life of poverty through self-education. Fulfilling an early passion for mathematics, he taught himself advanced topics by reading the ...
  • Derek Blunt (Keene State College, 04/11/2015)
    Given an area enclosed by a convex curve, the problem is to find the optimal arrangement of N points within the boundary such that the minimum distance between any two points is as large as possible. This particular problem ...
  • Meegan Ellis (Keene State College, 04/11/2015)
    A repunit (a contraction of ?repeating units?) is a natural number in which every digit is a one. This talk will discuss two interesting properties that are related to repunits and prime numbers. The first property is the ...

    A quartic equation is one of the form ax4+bx3+cx2+dx+e=0. There is a formula that will give the solutions to this equation in terms of a, b, c, d, and e, but it is very cumbersome to use. This talk will present a method ...
  • Erin Hilow; Nicole Marrero (Keene State College, 04/11/2015)
    In this talk, we will elaborate on a recent change in the high school Mathematics classroom, the Interactive Mathematics Program. More specifically, we will look at some background, why this change in education was needed, ...
  • Megan Fisk (Keene State College, 04/11/2015)
    The fraction 16/64 has the unusual property that if one simplifies it to lowest terms the result is 1/4, which is also the result if one (illegitimately) cancels the 6's. This is an example of a weird fraction. Once a weird ...
  • Brooke Hatanaka (Keene State College, 04/11/2015)
    One mathematical skill developed in a high school algebra class involves factoring a quadratic polynomial into a product of two binomials. For example, x^2+17x+30=(x+2)(x+15). If a 2 is placed in front of the x^2, the ...
  • Katherine Marinoff (Keene State College, 04/11/2015)
    Today?s education system puts a strong emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, often referred to as STEM subjects. However, despite the emphasis put on these fields for all students in higher education ...
