Indiana Project NExT
Mission Statement:Indiana NExT is a network of Indiana mathematics professionals and college/university mathematics faculty promoting professional development and networking opportunities for its members wishing to further engage with the mathematics community and use effective methods for teaching mathematics. There is a particular emphasis on offering support for new faculty members and beginning educators. Indiana NExT works closely with the Indiana Section of the Mathematics Association of America (IN-MAA), functions as a subcommittee of the IN-MAA, and has the same overarching mission as the MAA’s Project NExT:
“[That its members] would become leaders within the profession, their MAA Section, and in the greater MAA community.”
How to join:All members of Indiana NExT must either be currently employed as mathematics faculty, work in a mathematics-related ﬁeld, or otherwise be engaged with mathematics or mathematics education within Indiana. A member of Indiana NExT cannot be a member of another NExT section.
New members will be recruited if the meet they requirements listed above and one of the following takes place:
(a) He/she is admitted into the national Project NExT program.
(b) He/she has, according to the records of the Secretary of Indiana NExT, attended at least two Indiana NExT events.
(c) He/she has expressed interest in joining to an officer of Indiana NExT.

We will discuss the history of mathematics within the context of incorporating historical content into a broad range of mathematics courses. The panelists are all active researchers in the history of mathematics, and teach within mathematics departments. Panelists will give brief introductions of their experiences, followed by an extended time of Q&A with the audience. The panel is open to all meeting participants.
We will discuss inquiry based learning, inverted classroom models, peer instruction, and other alternatives to lecture-based instruction. Panelists will give a brief intro of their experience in these areas, followed by an extended time of Q&A with the audience. This panel is open to all meeting participants.
