The 2014 AMS Committee on Education (COE) meeting was held on Friday-Saturday, October 17-18, 2014 in Washington, DC.
The focus of the meeting was on the first two years of post-secondary mathematics education, including the interaction with other disciplines. Presentations included talks about the highly successful Michigan calculus program, the recent changes at Illinois to better serve engineering students, and an update on the American Statistical Association’s work on curriculum guidelines for the first two years of statistics education. Information was also presented on the progress of Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics (TPSE Math) and on the common vision for undergraduate mathematics.
