2018 Washington College Mathematics Conference

About

Each April or May since 1969, faculty from two-year and four-year colleges across Washington and neighboring states have gathered to foster their professional development. The conference begins on Thursday evening with an opening session featuring an invited speaker. On Friday morning and afternoon, faculty present talks and host roundtable discussions on a variety of topics related to mathematics and education. The Friday-evening dinner includes a keynote speaker. Presentations conclude with additional sessions on Saturday morning.

Math departments from Washington’s community and technical college system take turns hosting the conference. Since 1996, every five years the WCMC has joined with ORMATYC to present a regional conference. While (unlike many states or regions) the annual Washington conference is not run by WAMATYC (the state affiliate of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges), WAMATYC does hold its annual business meeting during the conference, and sponsors invited speakers and presents awards to outstanding faculty.
