Prof. Amy Tucker traveled to Toronto, ON, CA for the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) Annual Conference. Prof. Tucker was selected as a fellow in Cohort 18 of AMATYC’s Project ACCCESS (Advancing Community College Careers: Education, Scholarship and Service) which kicked-off in Toronto. This fellowship is designed for math faculty members in their first two years of full-time teaching who work with students who are in their first two years of college. As Prof. Tucker is the Foundational Math Coordinator, this fellowship provides an opportunity to improve the foundational and co-requisite math courses here at Stevenson.
While in Toronto, Prof. Tucker also had the opportunity to see some sights in the city. She saw a play, went to a Christmas village with several members of her cohort, visited the Royal Ontario Museum, and, most importantly, got to eat some poutine! Prof. Tucker looks forward to the next AMATYC conference in Omaha where she will be presenting a poster based on her work this semester.
