Service and Outreach Activities
A variety of outreach programs are offered by the Department of Mathematics. These programs include:
Professional development opportunities for educators including the Arizona Master Teachers Program and the Arizona Teacher Initiative
General-interest talks and programs like a recent interactive seminar about soap bubbles and the annual Daniel Bartlett Memorial Lecture
Other centers, institutes and programs are focused on outreach to the broader community. These include the Center for the Mathematics Education of Latinos/as (CEMELA), the Math and Parents Center (MAPPS), the Institute for Mathematics & Education (IM&E), and the Arizona Mathematics Road Show which brings hands-on math & science activities to schools and Boys and Girls Clubs.
The following projects/activities also have outreach components, but are described in more detail elsewhere on our website (follow the links below).
- Held weekly in conjunction with the Entry Level Colloquium, this colloquium touches on a number of topics of interest to math teachers. We encourage and invite teachers in the local community to participate.
- One week each April, our department organizes a number of events, geared for a general audience, in conjunction with the theme of that year's national Mathematics Awareness Month.
