WWCCSMC 2016

The tenth annual Western Washington Community College Student Mathematics Conference will take place Saturday, February 20, 2016, on the campus of Edmonds Community College.

Students from around the region will present brief talks about interesting mathematical topics they’re studying, both inside and outside of their classes.

Invited guest speaker Fritz Klein, from the Applied Mathematics Group at The Boeing Co., will discuss problems in geometry and optimization that arise in the design and production of airplanes and spacecraft, and explain how Boeing mathematicians work with their engineering colleagues.

There is no registration fee and a (free) lunch will be provided. Check-in begins at 9:45 a.m., with presentations getting underway at 10:15 a.m. The event will conclude around 3:00 p.m.

Present

WWCCSMC 2016 seeks students who would like to share interesting ideas and discoveries, either directly from their courses or from topics outside of their normal classes that would be accessible and of interest to other community college mathematics students.

Students may make presentations individually or in small groups. While we expect that most presentations will last between 10 and 20 minutes, there are no official length requirements or limits; we merely ask for a good estimate of the time each student or group needs.

If you wish to present a talk, please send a brief synopsis of your proposed presentation, along with the name(s) and e-mail address(es) of the presenter(s), to wwccsmc@gmail.com by February 11 February 16, 2016.

Students who submit a presentation need not submit a separate conference registration. We will automatically register each presenter for the conference.

Directions

The conference takes place in Room 212 of Snoqualmie Hall on the Edmonds Community College campus.

After arriving on campus at the 200th Street entrance, Snoqualmie Hall will be the first building on your left. Campus parking is free and requires no permits on Saturdays.
