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.

2018-19 UMTYMP Handbook
The UMTYMP handbook for 2018-19 is now available by following the link below. The handbook was converted this year from PDF format; please let us know if you spot any typos or have difficulty finding any information. For your reference, a link to the PDF handbook from last year is included here as well.
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.
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:
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.
