Description

The 98th Annual Meeting for the Texas Chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) will be held April 5-7, 2018 at El Centro College in Dallas, TX. We are seeking speakers (4-6 total) for the first ever STEM breakout session on April 6 where presenters will have an opportunity to discuss how they apply mathematical concepts in their work in science and technology. Presentations do not need to be math intensive as we’re just hoping to expose conference attendees to exciting work in broad areas in a variety of STEM careers. Audience will be a mix of undergraduate students, math faculty from Texas Community Colleges and Universities, and math graduate students. More info about the session is below: 98th Annual Meeting of the MAA Texas Section (April 5-7, 2018) STEM Breakout Session- Friday April 6 3PM-5PM El Centro College (room TBD) 801 Main St. Dallas, TX 75202
