We will discuss the successes and lessons learned while designing an Ecampus course with the help of an instructional designer. We will share examples of assignments, videos, and, in particular, discussion boards designed to help students develop meta-cognitive skills by learning from their mistakes.

The Selberg integral, originally relegated by its namesake to the pages of a regional publication targeted at secondary education students, has now found bountiful application throughout a wide swath of mathematical disciplines. Of particular interest, the Selberg integral (along with the closely related Mehta and Dixon-Anderson integrals) arise in random matrix theory as the normalization for several classes of $\beta$-ensembles, and are also use in the subsequent calculation of correlation functions for these ensembles.

Horizontal deformation, divergence and shear, modifies the sea ice thickness distribution through ridging and lead opening. Hence it has profound effects on the survivability of pack ice in summer. However it is not realistically simulated in many climate simulations.

Leanne Merrill is our colloquium speaker on Monday, April 22nd. She will give a "job talk" after her colloquium presentation from 5:00-6:00pm in KIDD 350. This talk is aimed at graduate students and will describe how to prepare to get a teaching-focused tenure-track job in mathematics. All graduate students are encouraged to attend. Faculty and undergraduate students are welcome to attend.

Allison Arnold-Roksandich has accepted a job offer to work as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Boise State University, starting this August. Congratulations Allison!!!
