What does NYSMATYC do?
(continued from the home page introduction)
Much of the work of NYSMATYC is accomplished through its committee structure and its executive board. The standing committees include committees on curriculum, scholarship, summer institute, articulation, awards, and legislation.
NYSMATYC gives awards for outstanding service in the advancement of two-year college mathematics education issues, provides scholarships for transferring students, and sponsors the NYSMATYC math league. NYSMATYC also publishes a semiannual newsletter which highlights the Association’s activities. In addition, NYSMATYC encourages and sponsors regional meetings for two-year college faculty, as well as an annual meeting which is held each spring. The annual meeting provides an opportunity for members to hear distinguished speakers, exchange ideas with colleagues from across the state and nation, and participate in the activities of the Association.
NYSMATYC was the first two-year college mathematics organization in the United States. Throughout its history, NYSMATYC has been a leader in the two-year college movement and has offered its assistance and expertise to neighboring states which were forming their own associations of two-year college mathematics teachers.
