On behalf of the Department of Mathematics at Siena Heights University (SHU), it gives us great pleasure to invite you, your colleagues, and your students to participate in the 15th Annual Michigan Undergraduate Mathematics Conference, to be held on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at Dominican Hall on the Siena Heights University Campus.

Featured Speaker
BGSU Professor Jim Albert

Baseball Prediction

This is an exciting time in baseball as teams start spring training. We explore the nature of baseball competition, looking at how the playoffs have changed over the history of baseball. We look at the relationship between a team's talent and its performance during a 162-game season. What is the chance the best team win the World Series and how has this probability changed between 1968 and 2011?

Jim Albert is Professor of Statistics at Bowling Green State University. His research interests include Bayesian modeling, statistics education, and statistical thinking in sports. He’s written two baseball books, Curve Ball and Teaching Statistics Using Baseball and is currently working on a new book, Analyzing Baseball Data With R. He is an avid baseball fan and enjoys playing tennis and following the Philllies.

This year’s conference will feature a variety of presentations by students and graduate program representatives. You may know that 2013 is the International Year of Statistics. To help support this we have invited Professor Jim Albert whose research interests include Bayesian statistics and the analysis of sports data. We believe you and your students will find his presentation exciting, relevant and informative.

We hope that you will help us spread the word regarding the conference and that you will encourage your students to attend and give presentations. Fifteen minute talks may focus on original research or expository on material that most students do not encounter in the undergraduate curriculum.

This webpage for the 2013 conference will be up and running soon and a link will be available on the MAA-Michigan website. It will provide up-to-date information, as well as online abstract submission and registration forms.

Last year, we initiated a friendly competition among the participants/schools - the "Barbie Bungee Border Brawl". We plan to include another activity this year that will require some STEM (Science Technology Engineering and MATH). More on this voluntary event to follow.

Questions should be directed to Tim Husband ( or Martha Ruesink (

We are very excited about this conference which has become an annual tradition for undergraduate mathematics students in Michigan, and we look forward to seeing you on February 23rd. .
