MathFest

15th Annual MathFest

15th Annual TROY MathFest Undergraduate Mathematics Conference will be on the campus of Troy University in Troy, AL & with a virtual component on April 8-9 and to invite you, colleagues, and your students to attend.   As we did in previous years, we are having a one-plus day conference. 

Troy MathFest 2022 is a one plus-day conference designed to provide undergraduate (graduate students welcome, too!)  students with an opportunity to present their work, either research or exposition, in a friendly and supportive environment.   Please encourage your students to join us to make presentations or posters in areas of mathematics, mathematics education, history of mathematics, and applications of mathematics.  Faculty may give talks, too.  We also welcome students not presenting to attend MathFest 2022 and learn more about a wide variety of mathematics, connect with a group of their mathematical peers, and add to their professional growth.    Students or faculty interested in giving a talk or poster should include information about their presentation when they register. 

·    The conference is free.

·    Troy MathFest 2022 also features a Calculus competition with prizes.   

·     We will again have presentations and poster session for students.

·     We have graduate school browse sessions with representatives from graduate schools in  mathematics. 

·    Last year, we had over 90 participants from 25 academic institutions across 8 states participate in our conference.

Troy University MathFest was a one-day plus conference designed to give undergraduate students a forum to share their research and projects. Students presented in various areas of mathematics, mathematics education, history of mathematics, and applications of mathematics. We encouraged students who may not want to present to attend and learn more about a wide variety of mathematics. The conference also welcomed graduate students and faculty to attend and give 20-minute talks.

MathFest was supported by the NSF DMS 1852674, Pi Mu Epsilon conference grant,  and by Troy University
