Math Potluck: A Student Swap Session
Saturday afternoon, July 29, 2017
Calling all undergrads and faculty advisors! Does your department have (or want!) a Math Club or student chapter of the AWM, MAA, PME, or SIAM? This session will provide a forum for sharing your favorite or most successful student activity. The presenter(s) will provide a “howto” for a single math event that a math club or student chapter has held. Together, we will build a toolbox of successful activities to take back to each of our campuses! Following the morning presentations, a free lunch will be held for all presenters and attendees of this session to promote continued discussion and collaboration amongst participants. Please indicate in your abstract submission whether your group is a Math Club or student chapter of AWM, MAA, PME, or SIAM.
This session is jointly sponsored by the AWM, MAA, PME, and SIAM

New PME Contest: Have a Pizza Π!
To encourage students to work together on PME Journal problems, Pi Mu Epsilon is happy to announce that any schools which send in correct solutions to at least two problems will be entered into a drawing to win a free pizza dinner (up to $100). Faculty may work with students , but each solution must have at least one student. The number of problems solved by your school is how many times your schools’ name will be entered, and then one name will be uniformly drawn for the prize.
