Please note that there will be a $100 individual registration fee that will be collected by the National Association of Math Circles after your application has been reviewed and accepted.
If you want to submit more than one talk, please fill out this form once for each submission.
These talks generally focus on providing a quick overview of your outreach program, or an innovative aspect of your outreach program, to other attendees. Each talk is 5 minutes in length. Not a second longer.Pre-prepared slides must be provided to the organizers by Wednesday, October 26.Each slide must be programmed to automatically rotate after 15 seconds.At most 20 slides are permitted.
Because of their format, these talks tend to be fun and high-energy. Since giving this type of talk is new to most folks, we strongly recommend practicing your talk (several times!) in advance.
Category 2: Contributed talks (20 minutes)
These talks will be 20 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for questions from the audience. These may apply to any aspects of mathematical outreach. Possible topics include: evaluation, research, assessment, recruiting and promoting your outreach program, summer and break programs, program enhancements, fundraising, and involving or expanding to include underrepresented youth.
Participants will share best practices (20 minute sessions) or will participate in group problem solving collaboration around different problems of practice (5-15 minute problem presentation within a 35 minute collaborative brainstorming session).
Category 3: “Math Circle” sessions (60 minutes)
Share your favorite mathematical outreach activity in a one-hour session with other conference attendees serving as the Circle participants, providing attendees with an activity to bring back to their outreach efforts.
