In this newest addition to our Math Days program, faculty members meet one or two afternoons each month with local middle-school students and solve challenging mathematical problems together.
The Gold Coast Math Teachers’ Circle (GCMTC) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) endeavors to support teachers learning, enhancing and sharing content knowledge and instructional practices that bring rich mathematical exploration into our schools.
We facilitated a week-long summer workshop which gave teachers experience with and resources from some of the wealth of activities currently being led in many Math Teachers’ Circles nationally.
We are continually looking to understand teachers’ needs, facilitate their interaction with mathematicians, and support their development as mathematics educators and will continue this program with meetings.
The GCMTC at FAU will support teachers in their development of problem solving skills as well as the incorporation of problem solving into their teaching curriculum. During these meetings, teachers will gain experience with a variety of problem solving techniques; subsequent sessions will focus on particular topics, such as geometry, sequences, counting, and number theory.
A place for students at FAU to learn more about mathematics, and meet other students who share an interest and appreciation for mathematics. One can attend lectures discussing some fun topics and meetings where we just hang out and solve problems.
American Mathematical Society - Our Graduate Student AMS Chapter is designed to generate interest in the mathematical sciences and encourage students in their mathematical pursuits by providing them with new opportunities and experiences.
