Welcome to KYMAA
The Kentucky Section of the
Mathematical Association of America is devoted to promoting and
encouraging the study, the teaching, and the learning of mathematics in
the state of Kentucky.
We have an exciting and vibrant
mathematics community in Kentucky. Our annual spring meeting is especially
fun and interesting event and we always welcome both new and oldcomers to
our gatherings. For more information on this year's annual meeting, click
