MathCEP is dedicated to educational outreach. Its mission is to develop educational materials and programs for mathematics students and instructors at all levels. We interact with the broader mathematical community through enrichment and outreach programs for students, professional development for teachers, and the development of educational materials, curriculum and technology.
Algebra Qualifying Exam Registration
The University of Minnesota has come together in a systemwide effort to confront the challenges posed by COVID-19. In keeping with announcements from the University president, we have postponed the UMTYMP Entrance Exams until further notice. We are continuing to take the health, safety, and well-being of our faculty, staff, and all students -- both current and prospective -- into account.
If you would like updates about when we will be able to reschedule our Spring 2020 UMTYMP Entrance Exams, please fill out this Google Form, and we will send you an email with the date once we know it, as well as any pertinent logistical details. Thank you for your interest in UMTYMP!
Information about UMTYMP Calculus
Math Analysis students and families recently had a chance to talk to Prof. Rogness about the differences between UMTYMP Calculus and other options. If you weren't able to attend, or would like more details, you can download an expanded version of the information from the meeting. (Updated 4/19/19)
MathCEP has Expanded
MathCEP has traditionally been very active in programs for K-12 students and teachers. To support these programs, MathCEP has hired postdocs with a teaching emphasis, and worked closely with the department's MS in Math/MathEd program. At the same time, faculty members such as Mike Weimerskirch and Duane Nykamp have been revamping the department's undergraduate courses in algebra, precalculus and calculus for biology students, often working on the same kinds of projects that UMTYMP faculty were involved in. Thus MathCEP was expanded this year to to create one umbrella organization in the department that can serve the college, state and region as a leader in mathematics education. We welcome the following people to the center:
Undergraduate Math Journal
Many UMTYMP students and alumni work on research projects as undergraduates, or even while still in high school. MathCEP has collaborated with the Math Department and the Institute for Math and its Applications to create a new journal where undergraduates around the country can publish their work: the Minnesota Journal of Undergraduate Mathematics.
