More Michigan students taking, passing advanced math

Michigan State University

Michigan high school students are going above and beyond the required math curriculum, likely an effect of the state's graduation requirements, finds new research from Michigan State University. The Michigan Merit Curriculum, which went into effect with the class of 2011 and requires students to take four years of math, at least up to algebra 2, also seems to be influencing more students to enroll in college.

For UTEP Doctoral Student, Bumpy Paths Offer Trajectory to Success

University of Texas at El Paso

Masum Bhuiyan, a doctoral candidate in The University of Texas at El Paso's computational science program, said he first became interested in using data culled from seismic activity after observing earthquakes in 2014 in Arizona and several stock markets since 2008 during the time of the global financial crisis. Since then, he has honed his ability to use stochastic models such as stochastic volatility and stochastic differential equations to create forecasts.

Subaru Telescope helps find dark matter is not made up of tiny black holes

Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe

An international team of researchers has put a theory speculated by the late Stephen Hawking to its most rigorous test to date, and their results have ruled out the possibility that primordial black holes smaller than a tenth of a millimeter make up most of dark matter.

Gender Parity: Not a Foregone Conclusion in All Fields

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Women constitute approximately 47 percent of the workforce yet are still underrepresented at the highest levels of business, government, medical and academic hierarchies. A team of researchers has developed a new model, described in the journal Chaos, to study the ascension of women through professional hierarchies. The model factors in the relative roles of bias and homophily, and unlike prior work, predicts that gender parity is not inevitable and deliberate intervention may be required in various fields to achieve gender balance.
