The Ask a Mathematician (AAM) program brings ‘real’ mathematicians into your classroom virtually.
The purpose of these visits is to inspire your students to see math in a whole new way and to give them a chance to interact with mathematicians from academia and industry.
Currently this program is aimed at students in grades 4 – 10. If you are interested in a visit for a different grade level please fill out the form below and select “Other” for grade and provide us with details for consideration.
This program uses Zoom to bring a mathematician virtually into your classroom for a 1-hour visit. During the visit the mathematician will speak about their field of research, some of the ‘real world’ applications of their work, and provide students with a chance to ask questions.
There is absolutely no cost for this program to teachers.
All we ask is, after your visit, you fill out a short survey to help us improve the program and so we can apply for funding to keep the program free.
