The AMATYC Conference in Orlando has not begun yet, but plans are underway for the Milwaukee Conference scheduled for November 14-17, 2019. Please plan to share your expertise, research, or great ideas by submitting a proposal, whether for 25-minute mini session, 50-minute sessions, two-hour workshop, Chat & Chew table talks, or posters. Proposals will be accepted online beginning November 1, 2018 through February 1, 2019. 

Hope you take advantage of this great opportunity to share and network with colleagues from around the country and at times the world. Attending the AMATYC conference is promised to be engaging and enjoyable for anyone who teaches math

  2. The student must be nominated by an AMATYC member who is an employee of the qualifying institution.
  3. The student must have an overall GPA of at least 3.0.
  4. The nominated students must be majoring in mathematics and enrolled full-time at the nominating institution during the spring semester preceding the Annual AMATYC conference when the award will be announced.

Please send your nominations to Behnaz Rouhani before Friday, October 12.

A message from the President

GMATYC needs your support for us to continue to be a voice in all things related to mathematics education during the first two years of college. If you have not renewed your membership for another year, please do so at your earliest. As your President, I get funds equal to the registration fee to attend the 2018 AMATYC conference. However, I would like to challenge you with this offer – I am going to give this registration fee to anyone who brings on board the largest number of new enrollees to GMATYC (at least 7).

So, when you talk to your colleagues please ask that they contact our Treasurer, Sanda Manole at rmanole@gsu.edu and let her know who has introduced them to GMATYC. The deadline for this offer is July 1, 2018.
