Welcome to MathCEP

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 student, professional development for teachers, and the development of educational materials, curriculum and technology.

UMTYMP Qualifying Exams

See our How to Join UMTYMP page for details and registration forms.

The exam dates to qualify for UMTYMP in 2018-19 have passed.  Results for the Algebra class have been sent to the Twin Cities families using the email addresses entered in the registration system.  Results will be sent to Duluth and Rochester families by May 25th.  Calculus qualifying results will be sent by June 1st.

More information about UMTYMP is available on our website and in our Handbook.  The 2017-18 Handbook is available in PDF form.  The 2018-19 handbook will be posted soon.

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.  You can download another copy of the comparison which was emailed to you.

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:

  • Mike Weimerskirch, Director of Educational Innovation
  • Duane Nykamp, Director of Strategic Initiatives
  • Kevin Charles, Academic Technology Developer
  • Stan Pride, Academic Technologist

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.
