Amanda is currently working to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas. Where she is studying the behavior of fossil birds as interpreted through their footprints and other traces. Amanda recently traveled to South Korea to study Early Cretaceous bird tracks and has published two papers on fossil bird tracks, one in the journal Palaios and one in the Journal of Systematic Paleontology. Next, she will study Early Cretaceous fossil birds and bird tracks in China.

"My experience at Lake State, preparing an Undergraduate Thesis and seeing the project through definitely helped prepare me for graduate school. The interaction between the professors and the students at Lake State is far more similar to the interaction between a graduate student and their graduate advisor than the typical undergraduate student / undergraduate advisor rapport; it's much more personalized. It definitely helped prepare me for grad school."

Here for you...

Students in mathematics regularly participate in faculty-supervised competitions, including the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition and the Alma College Michigan Autumn Take Home Challenge. Students are also offered the chance to participate in a variety of individualized “special topics” experiences during the course of their undergraduate careers. Students in the non-education degree programs are expected to complete some type of senior-level research or applications project, again under the direct supervision of a departmental faculty member.

Using Mobile Applica- tions to Understand Modular Arithmetic Algorithms

Collin Baker

Modular arithmetic plays an important role in a variety of modern applications, including cryptography and coding theory. In this project, we will research a number of fundamental algorithms from the area of modular arithmetic, and develop software applications for mobile devices that can be used to illustrate and explain these algorithms.
