Undergraduate and Graduate Student Posters in Mathematics at the 2007 National SACNAS Conference

Undergraduate and graduate students presented posters in mathematics at the 2007 SACNAS National Conference. The poster award winner in Mathematics was Brenda Jimenez-Gonzalez from Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico, for "The Cursed Duet: Dynamics of HIV/TB Co-Infection in South Africa." The presentations were in the exhibit hall, where fellow students, mathematicians, judges, other scientists and exhibitors could view the posters. The AMS Public Awareness Office provided a packet of math resources and a gift to each presenter. See the list of the 2007 posters.
