Supporting Educational Initiatives
The AMS supports programs for both the pre-college and college levels that nurture mathematical talent in the United States. The AMS has supported these programs in different ways. The AMS has organized conferences for directors of programs that involve undergraduates in mathematics research of all types, with a view to introducing students to research-level mathematics.
The AMS Epsilon Fund grants provide funding support and recognition for programs that focus on pre-college students and which encourage mathematically talented students to think broadly and creatively about mathematics and its applications.
Have questions about teaching mathematics in the classroom? Professors, graduate students, and education researchers will find helpful articles on the subject of mathematics education, and can glean hands-on advice on teaching mathematics in "Teaching Tips". The AMS also has several programs that provide support and networking for leaders of academic departments of mathematics.
To address the national imperative of training more well-prepared STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) graduates, the AMS is showcasing creative academic programs in order to encourage more innovation and collaboration in college-level mathematics teaching. Undergraduate mathematics departments are encouraged to share their ideas and experiences with the AMS to further this effort.
