Vol State at Livingston Faculty Member Honored

Joy Hosey, a mathematics faculty member at Volunteer State Community College at Livingston was recently honored as the winner of a state wide contest for the Tennessee Mathematics Association of Two Year Colleges (TMATYC) for her submission of “Mathematics: Music to My Ears.”

Members of the association were asked to submit a theme for the national American Mathematics Association of Two Year Colleges (AMATYC) conference to be held in Nashville in 2014. There were 10 - 12 entries that the TMATYC officers narrowed down to four which the TYMATYC membership voted on.

The next step is to design a logo to go with this theme. This is also being done as a contest among the TMATYC membership and Hosey has submitted an entry for that contest as well.

“Since the conference is to be in Nashville, known as Music City, I decided to combine that with my love of mathematics and came up with Mathematics: Music to my Ears,” Hosey explained.

Hosey was honored at the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) statewide conference recently held at Chattanooga State Community College. Members from Tennessee Board of Regents institutions as well as two-year colleges from out-of-state were in attendance.
