An international study led by Michigan State University scholars has provided a “dismal picture” of mathematics textbooks across the globe—and it has serious implications for the next generation of learners.
A new online mathematics tutoring program at West Virginia University is helping students navigate virtual learning.
The world is in the midst of a data revolution. From how we shop to how we vote and all decisions in between, there is a growing need for professionals trained to use modern data analysis to solve everyday problems. To meet these 21st century workforce demands, WVU is launching a new undergraduate data science major.
Thirty funded postdoctoral scholarships announced by Queen’s University Belfast are set to provide a unique opportunity to explore the challenges of Artificial intelligence (AI) for every area of science and society.
The Fannie and John Hertz Foundation today announced 48 finalists for the 2021 Hertz Fellowship in applied science, mathematics, and engineering.
People now have access to better real-time information about COVID-19 infection and transmission rates, but they still have to decide what is safe to do. A new model co-authored by mathematician John McCarthy at Washington University in St. Louis helps to contend with the uncertainty.
Irvine, Calif., Jan. 5, 2021 — Scientists at the University of California, Irvine have developed a new deep-learning framework that predicts gene regulation at the single-cell level. Deep learning, a family of machine-learning methods based on artificial neural networks, has revolutionized applications such as image interpretation, natural language processing and autonomous driving.
Nathan Moody of Los Alamos National Laboratory is a co-winner of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS) 2021 Particle Accelerator Science and Technology (PAST) Award.
For smokers who are better at math, the decision to quit just adds up, a new study suggests. Researchers found that smokers who scored higher on a test of math ability were more likely than others to say they intended to quit smoking.
In a paper published by the Royal Society, a team of Bristol researchers observed the exploratory behaviour of ants to inform the development of a more efficient mathematical sampling technique.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed a test that uses children’s ability to assemble LEGO pieces to assess their spatial visualization ability. Spatial visualization is the ability to visualize 3D shapes in one’s mind, which is tied to increased GPAs and graduation rates in STEM college students.
CSU Receives Grants to Increase Scholarships for Math, Science Teacher Candidates in California’s High-Needs Schools
New Brunswick, N.J. (Feb. 26, 2020) – Rutgers University–New Brunswick researchers have created a software tool that more efficiently analyzes how asphalt performs, saving transportation agencies time and money. As performance testing for asphalt pavement has evolved, the focus has shifted…
The Fannie and John Hertz Foundation today announced 41 finalists for the 2020 Hertz Fellowship in applied science, mathematics, and engineering
An international team of astronomers led by scientists at the University of California, Riverside, has found an unusual monster galaxy that existed about 12 billion years ago, when the universe was only 1.8 billion years old.
For more than a century, the Punxsutawney Phil has emerged each year to declare a long winter or an early spring, but how good is his track record of accurate predictions? Daniel Naiman, a professor in the Johns Hopkins University…
Once again, another year has flown by. One day you’re committing to New Year’s resolutions and in the blink of an eye, you’re wrapping holiday gifts. In the midst of bustling end-of-year festivities, we’re taking a little time to reflect on all that transpired in 2019. Join us as we travel down memory lane to revisit some of the CSU’s most memorable achievements and milestones.
Joseph Zawicki, associate professor of earth sciences and science education at Buffalo State, is available to speak about the STEM disciplines, and their impact on the future. Through his work with the WNY STEM Hub, as president of the board of directors, and the New…
The American Institute of Physics and the American Physical Society announce Svetlana Jitomirskaya, from the University of California, Irvine, as the recipient of the 2020 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics. The award is given annually to recognize significant contributions to the field. Jitomirskaya is the second woman to receive this award.
In a world where the best parking space is the one that minimizes time spent in the lot, two physicists compare parking strategies and settle on a prudent approach.
