JMM Panel on Transforming Postsecondary Mathematics Education

Panel at Joint Mathematics Meetings: Leaders from outside the academic community of mathematical scientists, including representatives of other math-intensive and interdisciplinary subjects, government, industry, and other employers, will participate in a discussion of the challenges and prospects for systemic change in post-secondary mathematics education. This discussion should promote substantial, constructive responses to achieve goals which include: 1) creating and disseminating course content to meet the needs of today’s students, especially by emphasizing the roles that mathematics plays in the modern world; 2) strengthening the pipeline for prospective STEM graduates; 3) developing, adapting, and evaluating new teaching methodologies. Funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Sloan Foundation. Cosponsored by the MAA, AMS, and SIAM.
