Corey Stein, who was a student in Math 171 last spring, has been awarded a Hoefer Prize for the Writing in the Major (WIM) paper presented in that course. The title of the paper was "Defining the Riemann Integral and the Lebesgue Integral Through Abstract Metric Space Techniques." The prize will be awarded at a ceremony at the Faculty Club on May 22nd.
Andras Vasy, who designed the project, was the instructor for course and Otis Chodosh was the TA. Both are being recognized for their "important role in fostering writing excellence among students in Mathematics and Math and Computational Sciences."
Congratulations, Corey, Andras, and Otis!
