Associations and Organizations
is the largest professional organization in mathematics. The web
site leads mathematics specialists and enthusiasts to conferences,
career and education information, job opportunities and reference
tools. Information about MathSciNet is available. The site also
contains a directory of institutions in the mathematical sciences
and a membership directory of all persons who are or were members
of AMS, MAA, SIAM, AWATYC, and AWM.
Mathematical Association of America
This is the
largest organization instrumental in the field of collegiate mathematics.
It seeks to motivate interest in this subject area by providing
information on contemporary mathematics, recent developments in
research, and conferences and events. The web site provides information
on electronic journals, professional development, students and student
chapters of MAA, employment opportunities, and, scholarships and
for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
The goals of
this organization focus on the promotion of mathematical research
that lead to new processes for science and industry. It also seeks
to provide the exchange of information and ideas between mathematicians,
engineers and scientists. The organization's nine journals are available
over the web at the SIAM web site. It sponsors many specialized
conferences, annual meetings, courses, workshops and activity groups.
of Women in Mathematics
organization promotes women dedicated to the fields in the mathematical
sciences. AWM provides workshops, travel grants, and awards. The
web site lists biographies of successful women in the fields of
mathematics and sciences. It also contains a section on careers
in mathematics that provide several links to grants, job advertisements,
programs and prizes, organizations, and mailing lists for people
within the mathematical science field of study.
The ASA's mission
is to promote excellence in the application of statistics. The ASA's
web site is a excellent resource for information on publications
in statistics, membership, professional development, awards and
grants, and job opportunities in statistics. It also provides links
to resources to other ASA chapters, sections and committees, as
well as other statistical organizations in the U.S. and the world.
for Women in Science, Engineering and Mathematics
online resources page with links to educational and career information,
research grants, and mentoring programs within the field of mathematics,
engineering and science. The purpose and goal of this organization
is to bring together parents, educators, and women professionals
to promote and support young women in the fields of science, engineering,
mathematics, and technology.
