Navajo Math Circles follows Navajo students in a lively collaboration with mathematicians. The math circles approach puts children in charge of exploring mathematics to their own joy and satisfaction. Applications of math in Native culture highlight the special connections between Navajo culture, natural beauty, and mathematics.
Part one: Jupyter and the PIMS Hub. The Jupyter Notebook is an open web application for quickly creating mathematical documents with TeX, live computer code, data analysis, and visualization. We will demonstrate Jupyter in use for both teaching and research in the mathematics sciences, with examples of numerical simulation, statistical modeling, data cleaning, and much more. The PIMS Hub provides free access to Jupyter resources for professionals across its network.
Part two: Panel Discussion on Jobs in Industry Industry is looking for highly skilled employees and research expertise, but there is often a mismatch between academic descriptions of our expertise and the skill sets being advertised in industrial job searches and proposals for collaborations. This panel discussion brings together industry researchers and hiring managers to present ideas on making the connection between the academic and industrial worlds, particularly when it comes to job seeking, hiring, and building collaborations.
