Math Is Cool! and Who Wants to Be a Mathematician?

Why is math cool? The Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications (IMA) answered that question in a November 3, 2006 program for high school juniors and seniors from around the Twin Cities.

"Math Is Cool!" and "Who Wants to Be a Mathematician?" leveraged the University of Minnesota's workshop for mathematicians honoring two seminal figures who inspired a generation of African-American, Native American and Latino/Latina students to pursue careers in mathematics.

Math Matters IMA Public Lecture Series

The IMA also sponsors a lecture series entitled "Math Matters." At each event, a distinguished mathematician or scientist illuminates the role that mathematics plays in understanding our world and shaping our lives.
