New online workshop! Engaged Pedagogy Series kicks off with “Mathematical Foundations for Democratic Processes”

Through its new Engaged Pedagogy Series, the AMS provides mathematical sciences faculty with experiences and resources that strengthen them as professionals and empower their engagement with students learning mathematics. In the kick-off workshop “Mathematical Foundations for Democratic Processes” (April 23-25, 1p.m. – 5 p.m. ET), participants will dig into the mathematics of voting and social choice theory, apportionment and the electoral college, gerrymandering, and quantification of power.

Participants in this online workshop will leave with tools and resources for teaching these topics that can be implemented in a variety of formats, from general education courses to upper-level mathematics seminars. Virtual sessions will be divided between interactive lectures and opportunities for collective problem-solving. We aim to create a collaborative, creative, and active learning environment. All levels of experience with teaching these topics are welcome! Link to more information and register:

Deadline to Register is April 19, 2023
