Panels

PME Panel: What Every Student Should Know about the JMM, organized by Jennifer Beineke, Western New England University, Stephanie Edwards, Hope College, and Tom Wakefield, Youngstown State University; Wednesday, 1:00–2:30 pm and Thursday, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm. Navigating a large conference can be overwhelming, even for those who have previously attended such an event. Common questions may include: How do I get the most out of the program? What sessions are especially for students? What other events should I be on the lookout for? Will I understand any of the invited addresses or should I not bother attending them? If I am presenting a poster, where do I go to set it up? How can I get some cool, free math stuff? Students and their faculty mentors are encouraged to attend. Panelists are Jennifer Beineki, Western New England University, Stephanie Edwards, Hope College, and Tom Wakefield, Youngstown State University. This panel is sponsored by the Pi Mu Epsilon Honorary Mathematics Society. This panel is sponsored by Pi Mu Epsilon.
