Dr. Carolyn Cuff, professor of mathematics at Westminster College, was invited to speak at the Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of Mathematics 53rd annual meeting held in Erie.
"My talk, "When I Grow up I Want to be, Statistics for the Nurse, Movie Star and Football Player," focused on the data analysis of these professions," Cuff said. "I researched Florence Nightingale, the first woman to be elected to be a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society in 1858; a data analysis of whether or not winning an Oscar for Best Picture seemed to influence the American Film Institute's decision to name a movie to the top 100 films of all time, and a data analysis of the salary versus yards rushed for running backs and quarterbacks."
Cuff, who has been with Westminster College since 1989, earned her undergraduate degree from Westminster College, and her master's and Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University.
