As part of “Math Week of Awesome,” the St. Mary’s Math Club will host an Integration Bee. This is like a spelling bee, but participants do integration problems (calculus) instead of spelling. There will also be fantastic mathematical food – Hexa-Flexa-Tex-Mex. Come see the third side of the tortilla and cheer on the integrators!

The Asian Studies Department presents Eva Pascal (Boston University) who speaks on this topic: “Christian Friars and Buddhist Monks: Making of Buddhism as a Rival Religion.” Prior to the Iberian exploration, the western religious world was divided into four categories: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and all others under “Superstition.” This lecture explores the encounter between Spanish friars and Buddhist monks in Siam (modern day Thailand) in the 16th century. This encounter led to the rethinking of the then existing religious categorization and the recognition of the existence of a rival religious tradition across Asia that would come to be called “Buddhism.”

The Department of Psychology presents the third talk of its Lecture Series: Benefits and Risks of Technology Use on Children in the Home and at School
Dr. Ui Jeong Moon’s lecture topic is “Changes in Media Use and Child Achievement.”
The more appealing media use has become to children, the more concerned parents have become about too much screen time leading to increased isolation from peers, increased aggressive behavior, or neglect of school work. Using data collected in 1997, 2003, and 2008 from a nationally representative survey of 3,563 children under age 13 and their parents, positive and negative influences of media use on children’s standardized reading and mathematics test scores were found. Potential consequences of different types of media use for children, grouped by gender and race/ethnicity, will be discussed.
Dr. Moon earned a B.A. in child welfare from Sookmyung Women’s University in Seoul, Korea in 1999. In 2007, she received an M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction from the University of Texas at Austin. She was conferred a Ph.D. in family science from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2012. Currently, Dr. Moon is a research associate at the Maryland Population Research Center (MPRC) of the University of Maryland. She is interested in developmental and educational issues experienced by students from diverse family/neighborhood/social contexts, including their strengths, challenges, and barriers to success. Her research has focused on the influence of computer, internet, cell phone, and texting behaviors on students by race/ethnicity, gender, and age group. She is also doing research focused on understanding the factors that underlie achievement outcomes within underserved and vulnerable populations such as immigrant families, rural students, and first-generation college students.
Co-sponsored by the Lecture & Fine Arts Committee. This event is free and open to the public. This event may be used to satisfy the Lecture Participation Requirement in PSYC 303, 490 & 493/494.
