On Friday, 4 November, TIME 2000 hosted its fifteenth annual conference, Celebrating Mathematics Teaching. More than 400 high school students from 27 schools in the New York- Metropolitan region, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, attended with more than 35 of their teachers. Also in attendance were 85 undergraduates, preservice teachers, and college faculty members. The opening session featured Dr. Jennifer Quinn, Professor of Mathematics, University of Washington-Tacoma. Her dynamic presentation, “Epic Math Battles,” set the tone for an outstanding conference. Exemplary mathematics teachers made exciting presentations that involved the conference participants in mathematical investigations and explorations. The 65 TIME 2000 undergraduates volunteered to prepare for and assist at the conference. Seven TIME 2000 graduates returned to be on the program and two participated in a panel discussion conducted by TIME 2000 Senior, Alicia Bharat. Special guest, Dr. James Simons, long-time supporter of the Conference, shared some inspiring personal remarks. A Texas Instrument handheld device and TIME 2000 gifts were raffled at the luncheon. Many thanks to Mathematics for America, MfA, for generously funding the conference.
