BrainBowlMatrix


The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences hosted a celebratory reception on Apr. 12 to recognize winners from this year’s Math Brain Bowl and Matrix column’sProblem of the Month” contest.

Brain Bowl

Each year, several NSU students compete in the Math Brain Bowl, which pits teams in a tournament-style competition. It’s Jeopardy meets Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, with questions covering a variety of mathematical subjects.

Emerging victorious this year was the team Manifested Covariance, consisting of computer science major Sharbel Bousemaan and biology majors Rajeswari Murugan, Ifaz Parvez, and Miranda Persaud.

Matrix

Matrix is an online column created by faculty in the college’s Division of Math, Science, and Technology. Each issue shows how math can apply to various disciplines, general life situations, and even humor. Matrix also features a “Problem of the Month” contest, open to all NSU students and alumni.

Congratulations to the following students who provided correct solutions to this year’s Matrix problems: Esteban J. De Anda, computer science major; Amirah Hill, chemistry major; Safiyah Muhammad, marine biology major; Sowjanya Thalanki Krishna Murthy, health science major at NSU’s College of Health Care Sciences; and Sheik Rahaman, computer engineering major.

Additionally, two students earned grand prizes for solving multiple Problem of the Month questions. Congratulations to Sharbel Bousemaan, computer science major, and Hung D. Pham, biology major.
