Promoting Equity and Access through Mathematics

 

The spring conference of ArizMATYC will be a student-centered day of learning focused on increasing equity and access for students through mathematics.  We invite participants to develop a talk or a poster session that they, their students, or both can present.  Presentation formats will include standard, burst, and poster sessions. Presentations for the Spring ArizMATYC Conference can focus on topics such as instruction, history of mathematics, applied math, technology, strategies for success, opportunities for growth, and/or student success. Additional ideas might include: research in the classroom, students and collaborative learning, or group projects that work.  Presenters and attendees are encouraged to explore the question around this conference’s theme: How do we promote equity and access for students through mathematics?

To kick off this amazing conference, Calculus: the Musical! will be playing on Thursday, February 7th at 7:00 pm for a special engagement at the Bulpitt Auditorium. The event is free to the public. Be sure to arrive early as the auditorium is usually full.

The conference will include a keynote by Dr. Uri Treisman, breakout sessions, a poster session, and vendor tables in addition to a delicious breakfast and lunch.
