During the spring break, Robbie Bacon, Philip Kearse and Ibrahima Seck attended the Mathematical Association of America Southeastern Section 2013 Spring Meeting at Winthrop University. Bacon gave an oral presentation on “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard Spock”, a more complicated (and more fun) version of the classical Rock, Paper, Scissors game. Kearse proved the equivalency of two geometric definitions of conic sections in his presentation. In the poster session, Ibrahima Seck presented the results he and Dr. Lai found in a three player version “misère Nim” game, winning the final poster prize in the poster session. Dr. Wei-Kai Lai and Dr. Fidele Nqwane led the students at the meet.
