Outreach Poster Session

Thursday, August 3, 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m., West Hall (Exhibit Hall)

All members of the mathematical community are welcome to present posters about their outreach activities. Some possible activities are camps, math days, math circles, Sonia Kovalevsky Days, and anything else that makes math more exciting and fun for the broader community. The goal of the session is to showcase these activities and present ways to get involved in outreach activities.

Note: Judges and students only 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Click here to read the Student Abstracts Booklet!

This session features research done by undergraduate students. Appropriate content includes, but is not limited to, a new result, a new proof of a known result, a new mathematical model, an innovative solution to a Putnam problem, or a method of solution to an applied problem. Projects that are currently "in progress", but leading towards one of these outcomes are also welcome. Purely expository material is not appropriate for this session.
