#### Mathematical Symmetry in Visual Art Design

(2017-11-15)

Our research project integrated aspects of the mathematical principle of symmetry, artistic imagination, and color theory to form three 3D quilts. Each student made an individual quilt prior to the final collaboration to ...

#### Introduction to D[subscript]8 x D[subscript]8 and its Subgroup Lattice

(2012-04)

Let A and B be groups and consider the direct product A x B. In regards to subgroups A x B, in 1889, Edouard Goursat proved a theorem that provides the structure of subgroups in a direct product. This study applied the ...

#### Distinguishing Colored Links

(2014-04)

A colored link is a link where all of the components are colored. The purpose of this study was to determine whether changing the color
changes the link, and how much information
is gained by changing the colors of the ...

#### The Mathematics of Perfect n-Shuffles

(2011-05)

The purpose of this project has been to analyze and generalize the behavior of playing cards as they move through the deck via perfect shuffles. Using concepts based in number theory and abstract algebra, these movements ...

#### Visual Spatial Tasks Predict Visual Spatial Talent & Mathematical Giftedness

(2012-04)

This study looked at the review of literature, which reveals that certain visual spatial tasks correlate with special gifts and talents.

#### Testing Benford's Law with Data from the Mathematical World

(2013-05)

Benford's Law, also known as the First Digit Law, is a principle regarding a pattern occurring
in large data sets. It states that if you were to look at a large set of numbers from the physical
world (lengths of rivers, ...

#### Evaluation of Supplemental Math Intervention in a Montessori Context

(2018-03-06)

Number Rockets is a tutor delivered math intervention program for 1st grade. A randomized control trial of Number Rockets found significant improvements in math computation and concept and application skills for 1st graders. ...

#### Introduction to D[subscript]8 x D[subscript]8 and its Subgroup Lattice

(2013-05)

Let A and B be groups and consider the direct product A x B. In 1889, Edouard Goursat proved a theorem that provides the structure of subgroups in a direct product. The purpose of this study was to improve and make more ...

#### An Equivalence Between the Polytabloid Bases and Specht Polynomials For Irreducible Representations of the Symmetric Group

(2017-04-18)

The purpose of this study was to study Young tableaus, which are combinatorial objects useful in the study of representation theory of symmetric groups, using mathematical theory.

#### When Do Links Admit Homeomorphic C-complexes?

(2017-04-07)

The goal of this poster is to ask when the same is true of C-complexes. Given two links L and J, when do there exist C-complexes F and G for these links which are topologically equivalent? To what extent is the homeomorphism ...
