What is NYSMATYC?
In the late sixties a group of two-year college mathematics educators, recognizing the lack of an organization designed specifically to serve as a means of communication among two-year college mathematics faculty, discussed the feasibility of creating such an organization. Mathematical associations then in existence were primarily serving the needs of elementary and secondary school teachers or of four-year college and university personnel. The phenomenal growth of two-year colleges clearly justified the formation of a professional association devoted exclusively to the unique problems of teaching mathematics at the freshman-sophomore college level. In May 1967, at a meeting in Syracuse, NYSMATYC, the New York State Mathematics Association of Two-Year Colleges, was born. Since that date,
Early in its history, NYSMATYC initiated publication of the NYSMATYC Newsletter, which soon became the NYSMATYC Journal. Since that time, the Journal has developed into an independent national publication known as the *Mathematics and Computer Education Journal (MACE). The MACE staff now includes both two-year and four-year college educators, and addresses the first years of college.
Currently, MACE is no longer published.
