Story Collider

At the 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings, the AMS partnered with The Story Collider to present five true, personal stories about people and events that primed the storytellers' lifelong curiosity in math.

Make a gift in honor of your mentorsPrime Factors helped celebrate the creation of The Next Generation Fund, a new funding resource to support early career mathematicians. Every generation helps the next. Make a gift in honor of your mentor or mentee and help future generations of mathematicians. Gifts of \$1 - \$1,000 are currently being matched twice by two generous donors, thus quadrupling your gift! 2[2(yourgift)]  (\$10,000 in matching funds available May 1-Jun14, 2019)
