Think About Math! (TAM) is designed to ignite enthusiasm in high school girls for mathematics. It is a workshop demonstrating that math is fun, relevant, and leads to exciting careers.
TAM participants will learn about the lifestyles and career paths of women who have graduated with a degree in mathematics. Girls will also participate in interactive labs and hands-on activities. We will explore the mathematics behind topics like computability, security and digital photo applications like SnapChat. All sessions will be led by University of Waterloo faculty members and professional businesswomen and businessmen.
Young women in grade 9 or 10 who are interested in learning about opportunities in mathematics.
The next Waterloo, Toronto and Vancouver TAM workshops will be held in April and May 2020. Information flyers will be mailed to schools in January 2020 and applications will be accepted in February 2020.
Successful candidates will be invited to attend one of the one-day workshops.
Workshop dates will be posted in October 2019.
Applications will be accepted online from mid-January 2020 to mid-February 2020. Students may apply for more than one workshop, however, transportation to and from the workshop is the responsibility of the student. A valid email address for a math teacher must be provided. Once a student has applied, teachers will be contacted by email to provide additional comments about the applicant. Successful candidates will be notified in March 2020.
Please contact the TAM organizer for further details.
