We are excited to share with you that the AMATYC Southwest Regional Conference will take place this summer in Little Rock, Arkansas! The conference is scheduled for June 15-17, 2023 at the University of Arkansas at Pulaski County Technical College and our conference theme is “Making Mathematics Natural for All”.
To make our conference a success we need your ideas!
Consider submitting a proposal to present a 50-minute or 25-minute session, or an interactive 1 hour 50 minute workshop. Presentations can focus on topics such as instruction, online and remote teaching and learning, equity and inclusive teaching practices, history of mathematics, applied math, technology, strategies for success, opportunities for growth, student success and other topics you would like to share.
The first-ever Arizona Women’s Symposium in Mathematics (AWSiM) will take place on Saturday, November 5 – Sunday, November 6 at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott.
The conference will have plenary research talks and contributed talks where women mathematicians in Arizona can share their work. The symposium will include a workshop on teaching and equity in math courses, and discussions on recruitment and retention of women in mathematics. We hope that faculty, instructors, and some students will attend. Limited funding is also available to support some participants. Please share with other faculty.

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?
