Posted on 4/11/2011 2:49:03 PM

Jung Colen, a student in the MEd in Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Education program, made two presentations based on a project she completed for ELMA 581: Discrete Mathematics for Elementary and Middle Level Teachers, with Dr. Margaret Stempien.

Jung presented “Discrete Mathematics in the Elementary Grades” at the spring 2011 meeting of the Allegheny Mountain Section of the Mathematical Association of America at Clarion University of Pennsylvania on April 9.

At the 2011 Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Mathematics Association conference, on April 2 at California University of Pennsylvania, she presented “Teaching Map Coloring to Elementary Students.”

These presentations shared an experience in teaching map coloring to a second-grade student and explored ways to incorporate discrete mathematics at the elementary grade level.
