The Association for Women in Mathematics
Join the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), a non-profit organization that encourages women and girls to study and have active careers in mathematical sciences and promotes equal opportunities and equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences.
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 engaging discussions with industry professionals, working on a wide variety of data science problems together, and encouraging members to teach each other data science tools and techniques they’re excited about. Everyone is welcome, regardless of major or technical ability. Please contact email@example.com 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.
