Student Research Presentations

The Canadian Mathematical Society Student Committee (CMS Studc) invite students (undergraduate and graduate) to present a talk on a topic of their choice at the Student Research Presentations Session during the 2018 CMS Summer Meeting.

These presentations should introduce the student’s research to a general mathematical audience

Any questions about the student sessions should be directed to the student session organizers, Jean Lagace and Marie-Andree B. Langlois, at studc-summer18-session@cms.math.ca.

To register for the session, contact the organizers of the session with a draft abstract by May 11. Notice of acceptance will be given by May 25. Abstracts submitted after this deadline will be considered if space remains.

Presenters will also have to register for the meeting, which can be done through this form. Student members of the CMS who are presenting a poster or talk have significantly reduced registration costs ($30 until April 30, $45 thereafter). If you are not currently a member of the CMS, talk to your department chair about the possibility of becoming a university-sponsored student member for a reduced fee.

Studc Outreach Workshop

Sunday, June 3, 2018 9:00 - 10:00 Carleton Hall 255

Organizers: Asmita Sodhi (Dalhousie University) and Douglas White (University of Victoria)

Sometimes we get so enthusiastic about mathematics that we want to share our love of the subject with the world, but don’t know where to start. In this workshop we will talk about some avenues for getting involved in math and STEM outreach. The organizers will share some of their outreach activities and experience, and invite participants to do the same - the more ideas, the merrier! The workshop will conclude with some time to break into small groups and brainstorm possible activities that could be used to share mathematical ideas with a broader audience.

Studc Teaching Workshop

Sunday, June 3, 2018 16:00 - 17:30 Carleton Hall 255

Organizers: Alexis Langlois-Rémillard et Marie-Andrée B.Langlois

CMS’s student committee (Studc) invites you to a teaching workshop under the theme of active learning. The organizers will discuss various strategies to integrate active learning to various class settings such as tutorials and lectures for small and large groups. They will also talk about diverse approaches to flipped classrooms. Note that the workshop will be led in FRENCH, but that participation in both languages will be encouraged. The group activity part of the workshop will be offered in both French and English.
