The American Institute of Mathematics welcomes you to the JMM Mathematical Institutes Open House Reception.
The American Institute of Mathematics’ mission is to advance mathematical knowledge through collaboration, to broaden participation in the mathematical endeavor, and to increase the awareness of the contributions of the mathematical sciences to society. Join us on Zoom Wednesday, January 6th from 4:00pm – 6:00pm Mountain Time to hear about our various projects and talk live with our staff.
AIM hosts workshops in all areas of the mathematical sciences. AIM focused workshops are distinguished by their emphasis on a specific mathematical goal, such as making progress on a significant unsolved problem, understanding the proof of an important new result, or examining the convergence of two distinct areas of mathematics.
The purpose of AIM's SQuaREs (Structured Quartet Research Ensembles) is to allow a dedicated group of four to six mathematicians to spend a week at AIM in San Jose, California, with the possibility of returning in following years. A SQuaRE could arise as a followup to an AIM workshop, or it could be a freestanding activity.
Research Communities are larger collaborative efforts involving at least 40 people, organized around a particular area of mathematics research. The purpose of an AIM Research Community is to support the ongoing research activities of its participants. It is expected that Research Communities have a long lifetime and grow over time.
Math Teachers' Circles
Math Teachers’ Circles are professional communities of K-12 mathematics teachers and mathematicians. Groups meet regularly to work on rich mathematics problems, allowing teachers to enrich their knowledge and experience of math, while building meaningful partnerships with other teachers and mathematicians. There are currently 125 Math Teachers’ Circles and six regional MTC networks across the U.S.
MathCommunities.org provides joyful, collaborative math activities for K-12 students, parents, and educators. Our activities are designed by professional mathematicians and educators to promote mathematical thinking and fun at the same time. We emphasize collaboration rather than competition, and focus on building inclusive communities around mathematics.
Global Math Project
The Global Math Project is a worldwide movement committed to inspiring educators everywhere to ignite and sustain in their students a love for learning mathematics. The Project was founded by a team of people who had the bold vision to bring the world together through common mathematics experiences, opening the doors for all.
Alliance Of Indigenous Math Circles
The AIMC is an inclusive community of Math Circles supporting Indigenous students and their teachers. Current tribal participation in the Alliance includes students and mathematicians from the Hopi, Choctaw of Oklahoma, Chickasaw of Oklahoma, and Pueblo tribes of New Mexico. We have also worked with indigenous students, teachers, and leaders from the Highlands of Guatemala, various parts of Mexico, and Nepal. More than 50 mathematicians from around the world are part of our network of support.
Morgan Hill Math
Morgan Hill Math is an outreach program which provides free math enrichment activities to about 300 students each year, who live in or near Morgan Hill. Activities include preparation for a variety of math competitions, classes in problem-solving skills, and opportunities to work with younger math students. We also host a Math Teachers' Circle!
The development of PreTeXt led to an unexpected application.
Open Textbook Initiative
The American Institute of Mathematics (AIM) seeks to encourage the adoption of open source and open access mathematics textbooks. The AIM Editorial Board has developed evaluation criteria to identify the books that are suitable for use in traditional university courses. The Editorial Board maintains a list of Approved Textbooks which have been judged to meet these criteria.
Research Experiences for Undergraduate Faculty (REUF) is a program for undergraduate faculty who are interested in mentoring undergraduate research. Faculty who teach and advise significant numbers of underrepresented minority students, students with disabilities, and first-generation college students are especially encouraged to apply.
