Local Events Coordinator for 2021 Needed

AMATYC is coming to Phoenix in 2021 and we need a Local Events Coordinator. This person will work closely with the AMATYC conference organizers to showcase the activities and events available in Phoenix while the conference is in town. They will lead the team of local volunteers who will seek to give the 2021 AMATYC Conference that special Phoenix Flavor (Chili Pepper?). The full description of duties is here: LocalEventsCoordinatorDescription.

Please let the ArizMATYC Board know of your interest by contacting April Ström at april.strom@scottsdalecc.edu. (She’s on sabbatical this year, so you’ll get an out-of-office reply, but she is reading her email and will get back to you.)

Teaching Mathematics in 2017 and Beyond
ArizMATYC – Fall 2017 Conference

October 6, 2017

This conference will include two keynote speakers, a panel discussion, and active discussions all focused on questions such as:

  • What do our students need to succeed in a 2017 world and beyond?
  • What role could/should technology play in learning mathematics?
  • How do we maintain a rigorous balance between conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, application/problem solving?
  • What strategies are most effective for student success in the mathematics classroom?
  • What mathematics should be taught and how should we teach it to meet the needs of our students and the academic/work culture they will face?

Plan to join your colleagues for active discussion about the teaching and learning of mathematics! Details about presenting, registration and accommodations will be posted soon.
