## Exploring Zeros of Polynomials

*Friday, July 28, 1:00 p.m. - 5:35 p.m., Salon C-6*

Mathematics Magazine (June 2016) have focused on intriguing properties of polynomials and their zeros. Given the long, rich history of this topic in mathematics and the wide array of techniques utilized, we believe talks in this area would appeal to a variety of mathematicians and students. Possible topics include extensions of standard results such as Descartes’ rule of signs or the rational roots theorem, dynamics of numerical root finding schemes, interesting graphical properties of sets of zeros, properties of zeros for specific families of polynomials (e.g., cyclotomic polynomials), novel proofs of standard results, and illuminating talks on well-known theorems and conjectures such as the Gauss-Lucas Theorem, Siebeck’s Theorem, and the Sendov Conjecture. Talks that utilize technology to visualize particular phenomena or results are particularly encouraged, as are talks that provide a historical perspective. We are also interested in talks that present open problems suitable for undergraduate research or independent study. Talks in this session should be accessible to advanced undergraduate students.

*Part B: Friday, July 28, 8:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m., Salon C-4*

Faculty are eager to offer activities in the classroom that foster student success, but many are not formally trained in pedagogy. This session will consist of presentations of demonstrably effective and innovative classroom techniques. Talks will address the reasoning behind, design, and implementation of resources or activities. While these activities may be whole course techniques, we also seek presentations of drop-in activities to bolster student learning and reflection in any course. Techniques do not have to be original to the presenter, but sources must be credited and evidence of success (or failure and redesign) is expected. To maximize the session’s usefulness, a Google Drive folder will be created and shared as a repository for the speakers’ slides and supplementary materials.

### Writing Across the Curriculum in Mathematics

*Part A: Friday, July 28, 11:10 a.m. - 11:45 a.m., Salon A-2*

*Part B: Friday, July 28, 1:00 p.m. - 4:55 p.m., Salon A-2*

Many institutions have adopted “Writing Across the Curriculum” programs and implemented first-year writing seminars. Even when such programs are not in place, instructors are becoming increasingly aware of research that has identified writing as a high impact practice for enhancing student learning. In particular, writing-based assessments help students to shift focus from grades to deep learning and to develop skills that transcend any one subject area. In all levels of math courses, writing assignments can be used to develop critical thinking skills, provide a better understanding of logical argument, and engage students who may otherwise be left behind. This session invites talks on all aspects of writing in mathematics, especially those pertaining to Writing Across the Curriculum programs. We also welcome presentations on the implementation of Writing to Learn principles in math courses, training of students in discipline-specific skills such as proof writing, and interdisciplinary writing initiatives.

### Undergraduate Research Activities in Mathematical and Computational Biology

*Friday, July 28, 1:00 p.m. - 3:35 p.m., Salon A-4*

This session is dedicated to aspects of undergraduate research in mathematical and computational biology. First and foremost, this session would like to highlight research results of projects that either were conducted by undergraduates or were collaborations between undergraduates and their faculty mentors. Of particular interest are those collaborations that involve students and faculty from both mathematics and biology. Secondly, as many institutions have started undergraduate research programs in this area, frequently with the help of initial external funding, the session is interested in the process and logistics of starting a program and maintaining a program even after the initial funding expires. Important issues include faculty development and interdisciplinary collaboration, student preparation and selection, the structure of research programs, the acquisition of resources to support the program, and the subsequent achievements of students who participate in undergraduate research in mathematical and computational biology. Finally, the session also welcomes the presentation of materials and project ideas that can be used to help get students started in research in mathematical and computational biology.

*Saturday, July 29, 9:30 a.m. - 10:25 a.m., Salon A-5*

Video games are a ubiquitous part of popular culture. While it is generally accepted that developing a video game often requires the application of mathematics, many neglect the fact that mathematical principles may appear in how one plays the game. This session seeks presentations of mathematical problems and solutions that may appear in the development or play of modern games. Presenters are encouraged to show college-level mathematics that might appear in a range of courses. We broadly interpret video games to range from single-player to massively multiplayer and to include games played on various types of devices (console, mobile, etc.). This session will be of interest to gamers and instructors looking for innovative examples to use in their classes.

A math circle is an enrichment experience that brings mathematics professionals in direct contact with pre-college students and/or their teachers. Circles foster passion and excitement for deep mathematics.

Papers in this session highlight either a favorite problem from a math circle, or favorite collection of problems used together for one or two sessions of a math circle. Contributed papers should describe the launch of the problem, what happens during the circle, and ways of ``wrapping up'', even if that doesn't involve answering the problem.

### Innovative Approaches to Calculus Preparation

*Part B: Friday, July 28, 8:30 a.m. - 11:05 a.m., Salon A-3*

Success in most science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields relies on calculus, and success in calculus relies on a good foundation in algebra and trigonometry. Although many students get that foundation in high school, many others – including many members of at-risk populations – arrive at college deficient in the basic skills they need for success in calculus. Most of these students have taken some variety of precalculus course, and repeating the same material, only faster, is often not an effective strategy. The aim of this session is for teachers and researchers to share ideas for how to improve the preparation of students for the study of calculus at the college level. We invite scholarly presentations of ideas to improve success in calculus among underprepared students. Such ideas may include, but are not limited to: research on student preparation or improvements in placement; research demonstrating effective instructional strategies, innovative classroom activities or pedagogies; redesigned prerequisite sequences or intervention strategies.

### Euclid and the Mathematics of Antiquity in the 21st Century

*Saturday, July 29, 1:00 p.m. - 4:15 p.m., Salon A-1*

Euclid's *Elements* is a fundamental text of mathematics in the western tradition. Geometry, number theory, logic, and the axiomatic method: all bear Euclid’s stamp. Moreover, the *Elements* was considered a central text of every liberal arts education well into the nineteenth century, more than two millennia after its writing.

The recent centennial of the MAA provides a fitting occasion on which to revisit the influence of mathematics's past on future mathematics and culture. We seek contributions that relate the work of Euclid or other mathematicians of antiquity to modern mathematics or the modern undergraduate curriculum. Original research, unique expositions, descriptions of courses with a significant integration of the mathematics of antiquity, and curricular materials are all welcome.

### Novel Introductions to Number Theory

*Thursday, July 27, 3:00 p.m. - 4:35 p.m., Salon C-6*

This session invites presenters to share interesting ways in which to introduce undergraduate students to topics in number theory. These "tastes" of number theory may be demonstrations, in-class activities, projects, proofs, or ways in which to guide undergraduates to explore and learn about areas of number theory while improving their ability to write proofs. Those discussing demonstrations or in-class activities are encouraged to share key portions. Presenters are welcome to share their first experiences teaching topics in number theory or how they have modified their approaches over time. Presentations related to teaching topics with which students experience difficulty and student reaction as well as information about successes and failures are encouraged.Abstracts should provide a glimpse of the demonstration, in-class activity, project, or proof to be discussed and information about the related topics in number theory in addition to the software or application, if any, used. Those whose presentations are dependent upon software or tablet explorations must provide their own laptop or tablet.

The goal of Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL) is to transform students from consumers to producers of mathematics. Inquiry-based methods aim to help students develop a deep understanding of mathematical concepts and the processes of doing mathematics by putting those students in direct contact with mathematical phenomena, questions, and communities. Within this context, IBL methods exhibit great variety.

Activities can take place in single class meetings or span entire curricula for students of any age; students can be guided to re-invent mathematical concepts, to explore definitions and observe patterns, to justify core results, and to take the lead in asking new questions. There is a growing body of evidence that IBL methods are effective and important for teaching mathematics and for fostering positive attitudes toward the subject. This session invites scholarly presentations on the use of inquiry-based methods for teaching and learning. We especially invite presentations that include successful IBL activities or assignments, that support observations about student outcomes with evidence, or that could help instructors who are new to IBL to try new methods.
