A Message from the 2017 MCTM Conference Planning Committee
The 2017 MCTM Conference Planning Committee would like to extend its most sincere appreciation to all who either attended, presented, or volunteered to make the conference a success. We want to express our gratitude to Germantown High School for serving as our host site. We are especially grateful to Germantown Middle School students Hunter and Hannah Henderson for serving as our photographers for the conference! Take a look at the 2017 MCTM Conference pictures by clicking on the link below. There are several hundred pictures, so it may take a few moments to load. However, once it loads it will be worth the wait!
Mark your calendars for the 2018 MCTM Conference! The conference will take place on October 12-13 at the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science on the campus of the Mississippi University for Women in Columbus. This year's theme is "We're All in Math Together: Collaborating for Success." Be thinking of the ways that you most effectively work with students and colleagues to maximize mathematical thinking and learning in your classroom and school.

In South Central Mississippi...
On February 7, 2018, Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s chapter of Mu Alpha Theta celebrated “e”Day. To commemorate the event, this chapter created flyers to pass out along with “e”Day cookies. The flyer highlighted why this day is important to the mathematics community while also pointing out that 2-7-18 will not occur again for another 100 years! Take a look at some of the moments from the event.
