Supporting Educational Initiatives

Two undergraduates present their research at JMM 2019The AMS supports programs for pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate education that nurture mathematical talent in the United States.

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.
