The Mathematics of Tiling.  Since 2008, Professor Hitchman has mentored eight students in undergraduate research in the mathematics of tiling.  This work, some of which has been funded by Linfield College and some of which has been funded by the National Science Foundation, has resulted in numerous regional and national presentations by students, and has directly led to four publications.

The Story of 8, a humorous look at one of the most magnificent of real numbers.  A small portion of this story appeared here in the November, 2017 issue of Math Horizons.
