The Association for Women in Mathematics
Join the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), a national non-profit organization that encourages women to study and have active careers in mathematical sciences. They advocate for women in various mathematical fields by promoting equal treatment in college and the workplace. Membership in this club offers many valuable experiences such as community service activities, career networking, and opportunities to find funding for math conferences across the states. Membership also helps students grow relationships with USU Math and Statistics faculty and other students in the department. AWM's mission is to facilitate greater awareness and support for women in mathematics as they help make the world a better place. Join us today by contacting Jenny Clements, email@example.com, or visiting this link: AWM Canvas Page.
USU Data Science Club
The mission of the data science club is to promote confidence with the tools for analyzing and effectively communicating data amongst USU students across all disciplines. We do this through inviting industry professionals to meet with us every other week. During these meetings, our guests typically share some of what they are working on, followed by some time for questions and answers. As such, the data science club is a great opportunity to learn from people already in the field and find potential internship opportunities! Everyone is welcome, regardless of major or technical ability. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) aims to connect people interested in applied mathematics to those in science and technology. In our SIAM USU chapter, we encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and networking by holding regular colloquium talks, student socials, and various other activities for students interested in applied mathematics.
Are you an inservice teacher in Utah seeking a secondary mathematics endorsement?
UMEP The Utah Mathematics Endorsement Project (UMEP) offers mathematics courses at USU Statewide Campuses and extension sites for Utah's public school teachers.
Would You Like To Become a Secondary Mathematics Teacher?
If you haven't yet graduated from college, then get a bachelors in mathematics education. Contact Math Advising.
If you have a degree, you can become a licensed mathematics teacher either by obtaining a second bachelors (recommended if you need to take lots of mathematics courses), or a master of mathematics (to qualify you must have substantial mathematics coursework completed). Either of these degrees will qualify you for Utah's Teacher Salary Supplement Program.
If you are already a teacher, then take coursework for mathematics endorsements through UMEP.
