for the MAA Undergraduate Student Poster Session at the
Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM), January 9-12, 2013
Please consider volunteering about two hours of your time to judge undergraduate posters at the JMM 2013 in San Diego. More than 300 judges are needed and all volunteers are appreciated, both faculty and graduate students are welcome to help out. Detailed instructions will be provided prior to the poster session, so donít worry if you have never served as a judge before; you need not be an expert in the subject matter of any given poster. While participants with scores in the top 15% will each earn a certificate of recognition, by far the most important aspect of the process is the constructive feedback provided to each participant by two or three different judges. The main goal of the MAA Undergraduate Student Poster Session is to give all advisor-sponsored students a chance to speak about mathematics to a supportive national audience.
If you have ever visited the poster session, you know the area is full of energy and excitement from the students, advisors, judges, and organizers present. If you havenít, youíve missed a great experience. The students are eager to talk about their research and they appreciate the attention and feedback of the judges. Volunteering to serve as a judge is one way you can help to mentor the next generation of mathematicians. It provides these students the opportunity to talk about mathematics research to a supportive national audience. It is a rewarding experience for everyone involved!
