Good news! I (along with Daniel and Eden) have been accepted to present at the 2013 Creating Balance Conference in San Francisco. Our workshop is titled Mathematics Serving the Community:  Empowering Community Organizations with Youth Research. 

In project news, I have received a database of trees and am analyzing those to compare with the data I gathered.

Received a new direction for my project—going to try to generalize some formulas to a diverse body of tree species. Planning on making it a constant derived from the rough estimated proportion of certain trees

Good morning!

This weekend, I met with my mentor and got some new directions for my research. After finding multiple regressions for leaf biomass, I compared the means of several statistics across tree species. Green ashes are really not good at a lot of stuff.

Good news!
Two days ago, I received notification that I (along with several other members of Math Research) have been invited to present at the 2013 National Youth Leadership Council Service-Learning Showcase, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Over MEA weekend, I went around the neighborhood one more time to connect all the trees with a physical address, the better to keep track of them. I also collected some data on the ages of (some of) the trees, picking up a sheaf from the St. Paul Forestry Department, to whom I am very grateful for sorting through 30 years of tree data. I'm planning to compare the relative growth rates of trees with this new assortment of data.
