CMC3 is all about the enjoyment and learning of mathematics and has much to offer students. The two conferences,held in December in Monterey and in April in Lake Tahoe, welcome students. Any full time community college math student can come to the conference to listen to invited speakers present what they know about mathematics and mathematics teaching. The conference cost for students is just $5.00. Students who want to have lunch at the conference will be charged extra.
There are two special opportunities for students for the upcoming conference at Lake Tahoe.
Student Mathematics Speaker at the Tahoe Conference
CMC3 will honor one student who has investigated a topic or application of mathematics. The selected student will come to the CMC3 Recreational Mathematics Conference and give a 20 minute presentation on the student's work. Thanks to Debra Landre, instructor at San Joaquin Delta College, who has sponsored an award of $500 for the selected student. Students must have a Community College math faculty member serve as mentor. Interested students can contact Larry Green at drLarryGreen@gmail.com for more information. Students can fill out their online application at the callForStudentProposal online application.
Receive College Credit for Attending the Tahoe Conference
Students enroll in Lake Tahoe Community College's MAT 119 (Topics in Applied Mathematic) and receive half a unit of college credit. Students attend the talks at the conference and then provide a brief synopsis of the talks that they attended. Interested students can contact Larry Green at drLarryGreen@gmail.com for more information. Registration for the course can be completed online at Lake Tahoe Community College's registration page.
Student Poster Session at the Monterey Conference
CMC3 encourages students to submit
a poster displaying their original work for our annual poster
session. Posters can involve any level of mathematics that
extends the usual curricula (no book problems!). Independent
study or modeling problems are encouraged. There is no fee to
enter and the student gets free conference registration.
First place prize is $75 and second place is $25. Students must have a current CMC3 faculty member who will attend the conference agree to sponsor them. Students can contact Rebecca Fouquette at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The online application opens late August - early September and closes the Monday after Thanksgiving.
