Fall 2017 Section Chair's Statement



INMAA Fall Meeting: October 7 at Manchester University

What does the MAA mean to you?  Most Active Association?  Mathematicians Around and About?  Meaningful Aid and Advice?  For me, the MAA is a perfect fit: people who love the fun of thinking about math and who care about teaching.  I hope you find it to be the same.

Summer is fading into the rear-view mirror and fall is upon us, with the excitement of fresh beginnings.  As you get started with your new round of teaching or continue with your old routine, please put October 7 on your calendar.  The fall Indiana section meeting will be at an institution I know well, Manchester University.  We have two invited speakers: Ron Gould from Emory and Gene Fiorini from Muhlenberg.  They both have good reputations as captivating speakers, so you won’t want to miss it.  Please consider giving a talk yourself, or bringing students to give a talk.  The deadline for submitting talks is September 22. [Editor's Note: Now extended to September 29.]

The spring meeting this year is going to be a joint meeting of three sections: Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan.  Planning has been underway for more than a year already.  It’s a very big deal: six invited speakers instead of two; starting Friday morning instead of afternoon; the usual student math contest but with teams from all three states; and more.  So put March 23-24 on your calendar now.  Lucky us! We only have to travel to Valparaiso. 

Project NExT has been such a positive force for our section and nationally.  The Indiana section is working on raising $2500 to support an Indiana Project NExT Fellow for 2018-19.  Please consider contributing to this.  ( )

Don’t forget that our section sponsors speakers who will be glad to come give a math talk to your students with the only cost to you being that you and your students listen to a plug for the MAA.  ( )

Think of the best teacher of mathematics you know.  Other than yourself.  Consider nominating that person for our section teaching award.  Or how about someone who has made extraordinary contributions to the section?  We would love to have more nominations.

Thanks to all of you who help make the Indiana section a vibrant organization.  Special thanks to Daniel Kiteck for his excellent job as chair last year. We can always use more help, so let me know if you would like to get involved in the section.   And check out our FaceBook page:

See you soon at Manchester!
