Northern California Undergrad Math Conference

Golden Section – February 2017
Section Meetings | Sections of the MAA | MAA Communities
Your students and you are invited to the 2017 Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference!
The Sonoma State University Mathematics Department is organizing this year’s Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference to be held on its campus on Saturday, March 25, 2017. This conference provides undergraduate mathematics students the opportunity to give and/or attend 15-minute presentations about projects they are working on. These projects can include undergraduate research projects, independent study projects, or any other independent work they are doing that goes beyond the standard course curriculum. The conference will include two invited talks: Francis Su will deliver an address about the culture of mathematics with a focus on equity titled “Inclusion and Exclusion in the Math Community,” and Cornelia Van Cott will give a mathematical talk tailored to undergraduate math students titled “Crows, taxicabs, and Minkowski geometry.”
Registration is free, and the conference hosts will provide morning refreshments and lunch for everybody. Please encourage qualified students to give a talk at the conference. Undergraduate students from all years of study can participate and give presentations on any area of mathematics, including applications to other disciplines. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the conference for the best talks. Of course, students who just wish to attend and not give a talk are more than welcome. Interested faculty are also encouraged to join in on the event.
Student speakers can now register at the webpage listed below; the speaker registration deadline is March 13, 2017. To find out more about the conference, please go here.
The previous conferences have been great successes. Students and faculty from more than 20 Northern California and Southern Oregon universities and colleges have participated, and each year featured excellent talks by student speakers on topics including Applications of Calculus, Mathematical Modeling, Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Voting Theory, Game Theory, Knot Theory, Combinatorics, Graph Theory, History of Mathematics and many others.
Below you will find an invitation letter to send to your students, as well as an advertising poster. Please share these materials with your colleagues and students.
Many thanks from the 2017 organizational team:
