Service and Outreach Activities
A variety of outreach programs are offered by the Department of Mathematics. These programs include:
- Workshops for K-12 Educators, such as the Mathematics Education Appreciation Day (MEAD) Conference and the Middle School and High School Math Teacher Circles
- Professional development opportunities for educators including the Arizona Master Teachers Program and the Arizona Teacher Initiative
- Programs for undergraduates such as the Mathematics Teacher Recruitment Project and the Mathematics Tutoring Project
- Programs like the Tucson Math Circle and the AP Calculus Practice Exam for area high school students
- General-interest talks and programs like a recent interactive seminar about soap bubbles and the annual Daniel Bartlett Memorial Lecture
The following projects/activities also have outreach components, but are described in more detail elsewhere on our website (follow the links below).
Math Instruction Colloquium
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.
Mathematics Awareness Week
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.
