​World-Renowned Mathemagician, BRADLEY FIELDS, Returns to Queens College to Launch
the Sixth Annual Conference: Celebrating Mathematics Teaching
 
On Friday, 16 November 2007, TIME 2000 hosted its sixth annual conference, CELEBRATING MATHEMATICS TEACHING. The conference was a record-breaking event with more than 360 high school students, 30 teachers, 80 undergraduates and 14 college faculty members registered. The opening session featured world-renowned mathemagician, Bradley Fields, who mesmerized the audience with his quick hands, quick wit, and quick mind. This was his second TIME 2000 conference?he also shared the magic of mathematics at the Second Annual Conference on 24 October 2003 (see Past Events below). Local and nationally-acclaimed dynamic mathematics teachers made exciting presentations that involved the conference participants in mathematical investigations and explorations. The 80 TIME 2000 undergraduates volunteered to prepare for and assist at the conference. Several TIME 2000 graduates returned to be on the program and participate in a panel discussion conducted by Senior Randall Clarke. Texas Instruments, Inc. donated calculators and software that were raffled off at the end of the conference. Math for America of the Simons Foundation is gratefully acknowledged for funding the conference again this year.
