The College of Science and Mathematics students and faculty returned with great success for the 43rd Annual CSAM/Sigma Xi Student Research Symposium. The event was held in-person making it the first large student research conference on the Montclair State University campus in more than two years.
Indeed, student and faculty turnout was as strong as the last pre-pandemic symposium, held in 2019, with approximately 100 student presentations with more than 200 people in attendance at the Center for Environmental Life Science. Undergraduate and Graduate CSAM students gave oral and poster presentations on topics ranging from molecular biology, chemistry, and biochemistry to earth science, ecology, and sustainability to mathematics, computer science and even into the furthest reaches of outer space. Our students were supported by world-class CSAM research faculty who provided outstanding mentorship and training.
A phenomenal showcase of student-faculty research at Montclair State University!
Alfred Limbere, a student in the mathematics education doctoral program who is studying with Professor Steven Greenstein, made a presentation on his dissertation study entitled, Using Teacher Noticing and Video-Mediated Professional Learning to Develop Preservice Teachers’ Knowledge for Teaching the Derivative.
Students from our MA in Middle School Mathematics program, Jennifer Smith and Maribel Batista stand with professor Eileen Fernández. Jennifer and Maribel presented work from a final project in Professor Fernández’s Fall 2020 class on Measurement in Middle Schools. They explored how to measure math anxiety and made a poster on The Effects of Time Assessments on Students in Mathematics Classrooms.
