MSU Math Ed at the 2020 Joint Math Meetings

Several PRIME faculty will be sharing their research with members of the mathematics community at the 2020 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM), January 15-18, in Denver. 

Known as the “largest mathematics meeting in the world”, the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the American Mathematical Society (AMS) are expecting record-breaking numbers again this year.

Shiv Karunakaran PhotoShiv Smith Karunakaran and Jack Smith, along with Mari Levin from Western Michigan University, will be presenting research from their project at a poster session on Thursday afternoon.

Shiv noted, "NSF-DUE-IUSE awardees were invited to make posters and share about their project." He continued, "I am co-organizing the Research in Undergraduate Mathematics contributed paper sessions. There are 3 such sessions this year."
