The math dept. is hosting the visit of an actuary 3:30, Wednesday, October 17. If you are teaching a course Calc. I or beyond and have the time and inclination to make an announcement, please consider doing so. I think the target audience that we might be missing otherwise are those Econ., Finance & Accounting majors sitting in our Calc I, II and III classes who might be interested. In particular, most Finance majors declare their major after they have satisfied their math requirement. If you have any questions for me, please ask. Thanks, Steve
