Call for Suggestions for the Mary P. Dolciani Award

The Dolciani Halloran Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the Mary P. Dolciani Award to recognize a research mathematician in pure or applied mathematics who is making a distinguished contribution to the mathematical education of K-16 students. The first of these awards is to be given at MathFest 2012, upon recommendation by a committee of MAA members appointed by the President, Paul Zorn; the committee's recommendation is to be approved by the Board of Governors. Send names of those who should be considered for the Mary P. Dolciani Award to the MAA secretary's assistant, Julie Forster, and she will forward the information to the committee. Please include a short discussion of the reasons behind your recommendation. Deadline is April 4, 2012. Questions should be directed to Barbara Faires, MAA Secretary.
