George's Mathematical Career
In 2021 George managed to accomplish a long-desired dream of putting together the problems of the first Mathematical Contest he was in charge of when he published his book:
'The Competition Corner in the Mathematics Student: Its history, problems, solutions, and the people involved in this year-round problem-solving contest of yesteryears'
About the Book: The Competition Corner was conducted via the Problem Section of the former Mathematics Student journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in 1978-1981. This book presents the problem sets of the Competition Corner along with multiple solutions by the contestants. Career highlights of over a hundred participants are featured along with numerous photographs.
Along with the problems and solutions of the program, the book also contains relevant information about the contest, the history of such year-round problem-solving competitions via correspondence, and the need for such a program in the USA and Canada.
For the United States to keep her position as a leader in technology, it will be necessary to pay proper attention to her greatest national treasure and develop the talents of her mathematically gifted youth to the fullest. The present book suggests a possible method to accomplish that.
Most recently, George was the subject of an NPR (National Public Radio) broadcast on Sunday, April 7, 2019. It may be viewed and listened to here. As a result of this great program, George has written several articles to appear in Math journals soon.
