Congratulations to Pamini Thangarajah, the recipient of the Distinguished Faculty Award in 2018
Pamini has been described as "a driving force of post-secondary mathematics education in the province." She has led the development of Mount Royal's minor in mathematics for elementary education, among others, and work to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields to girls of all ages around the world.
The impact of Pamini's passion for mathematics is far reaching. Pamini's work can be found in the courses taught at MRU but in K-12 schools as well. Her contributions to the professional development of mathematics teachers and foundational textbooks have made her an integral collaborator in provincial education. She has also been asked to speak at international conferences on educational issues in mathematics, computational mathematics, computational geometry, and statistics.

Computing and Mathematics in the Community
Over the summer we have upgraded the workstations in three of our computer labs, B107, B215 and B162, with dual monitors. Students learning programming and web development will have twice the screen real estate to work on!
Funding for these upgrades was provided by MRU’s capital funding and the monitors were installed by Mathematics and Computing Instructional Assistants, Jordan Pratt and Steve Kalmar.
