### The International Conference on the Theory, Methods and Applications of Nonlinear Equations

* The International conference on the Theory, Methods and Applications* was held on

of Nonlinear Equations

**December 17 - December 21, 2012**.

The main aim of the conference was to promote, encourage, and bring together

researchers in the fields of

*Ordinary Differential Equations,*

*Partial Differential*

Equations,Integral Equations, Integro Differential Equations, Stochastic

Equations,Integral Equations, Integro Differential Equations, Stochastic

*Differential Equations,Impulsive Differential Equations, Operator Equations,*

Difference Equations,

Difference Equations,

*and*

*Dynamic Equations*on

*Time Scales*. A

special emphasis was on the applications of

*Nonlinear*

*Equations.*

The conference was a huge success with over 40 countries

represented and an attendance of over 200.

*Statistics' Day*

The purpose of * Statistics' Day* is to increase student and faculty

awareness of the important role that statistics plays in our everyday

lives, particularly its use in a variety of disciplines. The department

*hosted its*

*annual*

**7****th***on*

**Statistics' Day***It was attended*

**February****21, 2018**.by more than 165 students and faculty. This annual event has improved

enrollment of math major students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

### Math Interface

The Mathematics' Department continues a tradition of strengthening

the connections between mathematical theories and practices.

**Math Interface** is designed for the professional development of

high school mathematics teachers. After a break of two years,

the annual event was organized on **February 12, 2016.** It was

attended by 16 school teachers and faculty of the Mathematics'

Department. The total attendance was over 45.

## Camps

### Whiz Kids Math Camp

Every year the Mathematics' Department organizes the **Whiz Kids Math**

**Camp** to strengthen the educational skills of teaching mathematics for

fourth and fifth grade students. The 2018 Whiz Kids Math Camp was held

for one week **June 18 -- June 22nd** with 16 campers in attendance.

## Events

### Javelina Cup Mathematics' Competition

The purpose of the J**avelina Cup Mathematics' Competition** is to enhance

awareness of mathematics among 8th, 9th, and 10th graders, so that they

develop an interest in mathematics. The 2017 competition was held on

**Saturday, December 2nd**. Forty-five students representing 6 high schools

participated in the competition. It is expected that this event will improve

enrollment of math major students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

### JavALab Algebra Competition

A competition is held at the end of each Fall and Spring semester for all

**Algebra** students. Students take a comprehensive examination in **ALEKS**

and prizes of $250; $150: and $100 are awarded to the students with the

top three highest scores respectively. Grade incentives are also extended

to the participating students. This has fostered and promoted academic

excellence and has rewarded students for their hard work and dedication.

### Math Seminar

The department organizes bi-weekly **seminars** by the faculty of the Math

Department and visitors.
