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. 


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.
