Announcing the department’s new Directed Reading Program!

Our Directed Reading Program pairs undergraduate students with graduate mentors to undertake independent reading projects covering advanced topics in mathematics that are generally not taught at the undergraduate level. We look forward to learning interesting mathematics with you! View a list of possible projects and graduate mentors; if you are very interested in a particular topic that is not on the list, there may be a graduate mentor who would be happy to read through that topic with you. The deadline to apply for the Winter 2021 DRP is December 24. From left, four of our DRP graduate mentors: Richard Haburcak, Juanita Duque-Rosero, Matt Jones, and Grant Molnar.

Outreach

Math Department and AWM Essay Contests

The Math Department is sponsoring the Essay Contest Biographies of Contemporary Women in Mathematics, modeled on the national AWM Essay Contest and open to all middle and high school students in the Upper Valley and to all Dartmouth undergraduates. You may submit your essay to both contests; the deadline is January 31, 2021. View detailed information including contest rules and tips on choosing an interviewee. Last year three local students won prizes at the national level!

Outreach

Promoting STEM education in the Upper Valley

Graduate student Doug Knowles (left) and Claremont Middle School science teacher Larry Bilodeau joined with a group of fellow graduate students, several Dartmouth faculty, and a collection of local middle school educators to discuss and develop a curriculum to promote STEM education in the Upper Valley. During his time working on the pilot program of the Dartmouth Rural STEM Educator Partnership, supported by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, Doug and his group developed a fully-contained educational module which they began implementing in early 2020, with graduate students traveling to act as classroom assistants and visible examples of modern-day scientists.
