Math-Physics Department works with local middle school students to help promote Mathematics Awareness.

Members of the Mathematics department are working with area middle schools to promote math awareness by:

  1. Hosting the Northern Maine Math League competition for 6th, 7th and 8th graders. The league will be holding their Spring contest on the UMPI Campus on April 30. Twenty area schools participate, involving more than 200 middle school students.

  2. Coaching local middle school students to prepare them for Math Counts, a national competition for 7th and 8th graders. The coach, a member of the UMPI staff will be coaching the State team and will accompany the State team to Washington D.C. in May.

Mathematics Awareness Month is sponsored each year by the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics to recognize the importance of mathematics through written materials and an accompanying poster that highlight mathematical developments and applications in a particular area.
