Five OSU Mathematics graduate students will participate in a workshop of  the NSF-funded program "Transforming Instruction in Undergraduate  Mathematics via Primary Historical Sources".  The workshop will take place July 19, 20 at New Mexico State University (NMSU).  The program creates  student projects for use in the undergraduate mathematics classroom which teaches content based around primary historical sources:  https://blogs.ursinus.edu/triumphs/ [blogs.ursinus.edu].  The OSU graduate students who will  attend the July workshop at NMSU are Adaline De  Chenne, Sarah Erickson, Sarah Hagen, Branwen Purdy, and Naveen Somasunderam. In Fall 2018 Sarah Hagen used several of the primary source  projects in teaching a "boot camp" for incoming OSU graduate students. She will make a one-hour featured presentation at the workshop, which is  co-organized by OSU Professor David Pengelley.
