Outreach- Expanding Your Horizons

I love getting young women excited about math and science, so I am involved in JMU's Expanding Your Horizons conference as the Volunteer Coordinator.  In 2016 we had over 180 young women participating and more than 80 JMU volunteers helping us out!  It was a great success.  If you live near Harrisonburg and know a young woman in grades 6-10, please share the link or check us out on Facebook!

MD-DC-VA IBL Consortium

I am one of the originating members/organizers of the MD-DC-VA IBL Consortium, a group supporting IBL in the MD-DC-VA Section of the MAA.  You can check out our website, and we'd love to see you at one of our events at the MD-DC-VA Section Meetings!

JMU Math and Stats Colloquium

I currently serve as a member of the JMU Department of Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium Committee. We host a weekly colloquium series targeted at our undergraduate students, and attended by both math majors and our varied faculty. If you are going to be nearby Harrisonburg and would like to speak, let me know!  Check out our current schedule.

Assessment (FAAT)

As part of Project NExT, I helped co-organize a panel on Alternative Assessment Techniques at the Joint Meetings in San Diego in January 2013.  We organized MAA Contributed Paper Sessions on the same topic at the JMM 2014 in Baltimore and at JMM 2016 in Seattle!  Check out the
Alternative Assessment page for slides, resources, and a list of speakers.

The Silver12 Alternative Assessment team has now joined forces with the Formative Assessment team made up of Gold14 dots  (which means we're now the Formative and Alternative Assessment Team, or FAAT for short) and have plans to run minicourses, workshops, and contributed paper sessions at future MathFests!
