Teymuroglu Awarded ACS Grant

Rollins College Assistant Professor of Mathematics Zeynep Teymuroglu, along with faculty colleagues Joanna Wares (The University of Richmond), Carl Yerger (Davidson College), and Catherine Buell (Firchburg State University), were recently awarded $14,700 by the Associated Colleges of the South for their project, ACS Workshop: Mathematics for Social Justice.

The workshop will be held on the Rollins College campus on May 21 – 22. It will focus on creating activities, lessons, and projects that address complex issues such as inequality in health, education, and wealth distributions, or race and gender issues, to promote applications of mathematics and critical thinking. Such activities aim to increase both students’ mathematical ability and their social consciences while integrating their diverse backgrounds and knowledge into mathematics curriculum.
