PIC Math Program
In Spring of 2022, Dr. A. Condori will lead a cohort of FGCU undergraduate students in a semester-long undergraduate research experience using mathematics to address a problem from business, industry, or government. Funding for this project is provided by NSF grant DMS-1722275 through the MAA Preparation for Industrial Careers in Mathematical Sciences Program (PIC Math) and the National Security Agency (NSA).
How the Facebook algorithm decides what you see
Facebook has come under criticism for its algorithm, facing accusations that it helps promote harmful content. But Algorithms are complicated, filled with letters, numbers and variables that control so much of what we see online. So how do they work?
WINK News spoke with Florida Gulf Coast University statistician Senthil Girimurugan and asked them to simplify it.”The more you give into Facebook, the more it’s going to learn about you.”
Project NExT Fellow
Assistant Professor Dania Sheaib was recently selected Project NExT Fellow by Mathematical Association of America. Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) is a prestigious recognition and professional development opportunity for new faculty members. Congratulations!
Modeling the Spread of West Nile Virus in Southwest Florida
Modeling the Spread of West Nile Virus in Southwest Florida completed by FGCU's Industrial Math Team is chosen among the best eight in the country, out of roughly forty teams, by the MAA. Feedback provided by two anonymous referees included:
"Excellent... The work is professional with a clear focus on the industry application and problem at hand."
"This is a very well done project... My guess is that the sponsor is very happy with this work and that they will actually use it in practice. This is a model PIC Math project that should be showcased."
Accordingly, the team was invited to deliver an oral presentation at MathFest this August of 2022. Go Eagles!
Math Department Tutoring Center
The Math Department Tutoring Center is a place for all FGCU students to get assistance studying for their math classes. Center will provide the tools necessary to meet and exceed the demands of your lower level math courses. Its primary function is to provide students with the opportunity to receive one-on-one help from tutors ready and able to answer questions.
