There were more than 20 teams from across the state competing in the Calculus Bowl.
“The group rigorously participated in the Tournament and was able to receive third prize, winning on behalf of the Mathematical Society of TAMIU,” said Dr. Rohitha Goonatilake, Society advisor and professor and coordinator of mathematics.
“The team wanted to thank Candy Hein, vice president, Office of Institutional Advancement, and the Society for supporting travel for this event,” Dr. Goonatlike said.
Dr. Firooz Khosraviyani, associate professor of computer science and mathematics and also Society advisor, accompanied the team to the Bowl.
Of special note, not all students who competed are majoring in mathematics, but all are members of the TAMIU Mathematical Society.
