SISL > 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop > Workshop Program

Workshop Program

The MAA PREP Workshop Educating with Math for a Sustainable Future was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. We will use the unfortunate delay to reorganize the workshop in the following ways:

  1. introduction of the topic and the website via an online webinar,
  2. facilitated working group meeting with a workshop facilitator and your small group participants so you can start creating and uploading activities, and
  3. face-to-face working group meeting at the MAA Carriage House (scheduled for March 15-17, 2013).
