Fall 2019 ArizMATYC Conference @ NAU

Join mathematics faculty from throughout the Arizona for the Fall 2019 ArizMATYC Conference. The conference will be held at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona on Friday, October 11, 2019.  

FlagstaffMathematics Throughout History: from 50 to 5000 Years

The Fall Conference of ArizMATYC will be a celebration of mathematics in the state of Arizona.  It marks the 50th anniversary of the first meeting of the Arizona Mathematics Consortium, the forerunner organization to both the Articulation Task Force (ATF) and the Arizona Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (ArizMATYC). That meeting took place at Northern Arizona University, which is why this fall’s conference is being held at NAU.

In the spirit of this momentous occasion, the conference’s title is: “Mathematics Throughout History: from 50 to 5000 Years.”

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 Fall ArizMATYC Conference can focus on topics such as instruction, applied mathematics, quantitative reasoning, 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 have discoveries and advances in mathematical thoughts and ideas contributed to our present day society?

The conference will include a keynote by Anne and David Dudley, breakout sessions, a poster session, and vendor tables in addition to a delicious breakfast and lunch.


What’s the Arizona Math Consortium?
A Brief History of ArizMATYC and the Math ATF

Faculty members from the universities and the community colleges have been meeting twice annually for many years. The Dudleys will capture this history (to the best of their knowledge) in a short talk that includes pictures, play-along multiple-choice questions, and even some historical facts. Join them as they take a look at the history of articulation and collegiality in mathematics in Arizona.

Anne and David Dudley are both retired mathematics faculty from the Maricopa Colleges. Between them they have over 70 years of teaching college mathematics. They are active in ArizMATYC and the Math ATF and promised that (once they retired) they would work on the history of the organizations.

Anne, faculty emeritus from GCC received teaching awards from the MAA, AMATYC and Glendale CC. David, faculty emeritus from Scottsdale CC, received teaching awards from AMATYC and ASU (Wexler Award). Currently Anne is serving as co-webmaster of the ArizMATYC website and is AMATYC’s Executive Director. David is currently serving as ArizMATYC’s historian.
