My World: Tara Walker

Tara Walker knows all about brownie pans. She's not a baker, but she and two other Seattle Pacific teammates wrote a 23-page math solution paper about the most optimal pan for the Mathematical Contest in Modeling. Thousands of teams enter the 96-hour competition worldwide. Her team placed in the top 20 percent earning the title of "meritorious winner" for the second year in a row. Tara enjoys the collaborative nature of being in the math major. "We bounce ideas back and forth," she says. "It's a lot of teamwork."
