On Friday, 2 November, TIME 2000 hosted its seventeenth annual conference, Celebrating Mathematics Teaching. More than 400 high school students from 16 schools in the New York- Metropolitan region attended with more than 25 of their teachers. Also in attendance were 85 undergraduates, preservice teachers, and college faculty members. The opening session featured Dr. Eugenia Cheng, School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her dynamic presentation, “How to Bake Pi: Making Abstract Mathematics Palatable,” set the tone for an outstanding conference. Exemplary mathematics teachers made exciting presentations that involved the conference participants in mathematical investigations and explorations. The 75 TIME 2000 undergraduates volunteered to prepare for and assist at the conference. Six TIME 2000 graduates returned to be on the program and one participated in a panel discussion conducted by TIME 2000 Senior, Bushra Mistry. 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.
