Don't u wanna work with me cuz?
Since it is Homecoming...you might wanna consider working with the Agency and Howard Alumna next semester
Partnering with Howard University to Promote Research
The U.S. Census Bureau and Howard University launched a new collaborative effort to give math students a chance to work on research projects at the agency
The Preparation for Industrial Careers in Mathematical Sciences (PIC Math) program helps students with a strong background in math learn what career opportunities are available
Elizabeth Love a Howard University alum, served as the liaison
She worked with the math professors to launch the class and solicited ideas for projects from Census Bureau managers
Students worked with Aref Dajani to increase the efficiency of an algorithm that protects respondent data.
The students not only improved the algorithm, but also translated the SAS program into other object-oriented languages, including R and Python
This resulted in a 10-fold speedup. Dajani says, We gave these math undergrads a problem that was admittedly difficult for us at Headquarters to solve. They dove right in and produced the results we needed
The MATH CLUB secretary,
Tianna Burke says:
PIC math gave me not only the opportunity to see where math is applicable outside of the classroom, but also the chance to apply it myself
Being able to utilize all of the knowledge that I've gained so far in these complex and thought provoking challenges has been a great experience that I wouldn't have gotten from any other class
Don't u wanna work with me cuz????
