Fall 2020 Meeting Held Online
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the fall section meeting was held online, hosted by USC. On Saturday November 21, over 75 people gathered to hear Beth Malmskog present on ways to detect gerrymandering and Francis Su discuss the game of cycles. We had 11 contributed paper presentations on a variety of topics from across mathematics as well as on aspects of teaching math online. There was a fun mathematician trivia game hosted by the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) representatives Shanna Dobson and Ami Radunskaya.
Our section representative to the MAA Congress, Edray Goins, reminded us about the virtual Joint Mathematics Meeting this coming January, and the 2019 Impact Report that contains lots of data about the MAA. Also highlighted was the MAAConnect community where one can post and receive answers on all types of questions and highlighted the Micro-volunteering community where you can post is you have a short need (class speaker, colloquium speaker, etc).
Finally, if you are interested in getting involved at the section level, we have openings for volunteers. We are looking for a meeting coordinator for spring and/or next fall. In the spring we will be electing a new Vice Section President and a Vice Program chair. There are job descriptions in the bylaws linked on the "People" page of this website. Self-nominations are encouraged and interested parties should email Dagan Karp, section president.
The spring meeting will be online hosted by Riverside Community College. More information about format and date will be forthcoming.
Thanks for joining us!
