Workshop on

Some high points of Undergraduate Mathematics education

IISER Mohali, May 14th, 2015

Venue : Lecture Hall Complex of IISER Mohali.

Inauguration: 9:15 AM

The workshop is primarily aimed at college and university teachers. However, participation from other sections of mathematical community is also welcome. The main idea is to form a large mathematics discussion group dealing with several aspects of undergraduate mathematics in India. The participants will be exposed to subtle points of UG-Mathematics and also some advanced topics of research pursued in the present day to give a glimpse of intellectual advancement.

There will be another workshop during May 12-13, 2015 at the same venue on Morse functions and handlebody decompositions of manifolds (details available in http://30ac.ramanujanmathsociety.org/workshop). This workshop will be aimed mainly towards research students who are working in Differential Topology and related areas. Participants of this workshop may also find the workshop on "High points of UG Mathematics Education” interesting and vice-versa.

Registration Fee and Support

The registration fee for participating in the workshop is Rs. 500. Those who are registered for the 30th Annual Conference of RMS can participate in the workshop without paying any additional registration fee. The registration fee will have to be paid at the time of online registration on the RMS website or on-spot at the  registration desk on 14th May, 2015.
