TIME 2000 hosted its 18th annual conference, Celebrating Mathematics Teaching Friday, 1 November 2019
On Friday, 1 November, TIME 2000 hosted its 18th annual conference, Celebrating Mathematics Teaching.  The keynote address was delivered by Jim Matthews of Siena College who engaged and amazed the audience of 430 high school students from schools from New York City (Queens, Manhattan and Brooklyn), Long Island, and New Jersey with 27 of their mathematics teachers, and 80 Queens College undergraduates as well as college faculty members.  Exemplary mathematics teachers led workshops that involved the conference participants in mathematical investigations and explorations.  One of the high school students who attended the conference wrote that it “opened my mind to how math can be interesting and fun. It made me appreciate math more.”  Many thanks to Mathematics for America (MfA) for generously funding the conference.

October Seminar

Tuesday, 15 October 2019
The guest speaker at the monthly seminar was Dr. Po-Shen Loh of Carnegie Mellon University.  Dr. Loh was excited to share his new approach for solving quadratic equations, now referred to as the Loh Method.  As it turns out, his Quadratic Formula proof was published the same day as his visit to TIME 2000.  If it withstands peer review, then the TIME 2000 students will have witnessed a historical moment:  the first presentation of the Loh Method in an academic setting!
