The Fall 2020 MAA-NJ Section Meeting
will be held as an on-line Zoom meeting on Saturday, October 24

More information coming soon.

We are planning to have invited speakers, panels, paper sessions (including student paper sessions) and more.

Contributed Paper Sessions for Fall 2020 MAA-NJ Meeting:

We are seeking abstracts for review for the Contributed Paper Sessions (CPS)
for the Fall 2020 MAA meeting.

There will be three special contributed paper sessions at the Spring 2020 Meeting.

General Contributed Paper Session:
MAA Contributed Paper Session (CPS) may focus on any aspect of mathematics.
Examples include expository mathematics, connections within mathematics or between
mathematics and other disciplines, the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, or
mathematical pedagogy. The CPS committee seeks and encourages proposals that will
contribute toward a well-balanced and scholarly program that represents the MAA’s mission.
Please send the title and abstract to the Chair of the CPS Committee at

Recreational Mathematics:
The Recreational Mathematics session is for sharing the insight behind beautiful problems
done for recreation. Examples of topics include paper puzzles, board games, sports, magic,
juggling, origami, and art. Entertaining problems from any field are encouraged so long
as they are both exciting and accessible.

Organized by David Nacin, William Paterson University.
Send abstracts to David Nacin at nacind@wpunj.edu.

The CPS committee will be reviewing abstracts submitted for consideration on or before
September 26. Please include in the subject of the email:
Contributed Paper Session Fall 2020 along with your name.

Call For Student Presentations:
Students (undergraduate and graduate) are encouraged to present at the Fall 2020 MAA-NJ
Meeting. We especially encourage those who had planned to present at the GSUMC this
past spring to consider submitting. If you are a student now or were a student during Spring
2020 semester, you are eligible to present in this session. Faculty advisors are encouraged to
inform students about this opportunity.
