About Eventmath meetups[edit | edit source]
Eventmath is a wiki for math lesson plans based on current events, powered by a community of educators. We contribute lesson plans, use them in the classroom, and participate in many other ways. Our mission is to help students use math as a tool for understanding their world.
Eventmath meetups are community-organized events that can be either online or in person. Here are some examples:
- Workshops that introduce new community members to Eventmath and help them contribute new lesson plans
- Edit-a-thons that aim to improve existing lesson plans, or put them through peer review
- Talks in which community members relate classroom experiences or present research about the impact of Eventmath
- Meetings for the community to publicly make plans or set project priorities
- Office hours for beginners (e.g. in a Zoom room or physical office)
- Social events to get to know fellow Eventmath participants
We welcome you to join us for a meetup!
Short guide for meetup organizers[edit | edit source]
Are you interested in organizing a meetup? That's great! A short how-to checklist is below, followed by some tips for getting started.
Checklist[edit | edit source]
- Create a subpage of this page, for each meetup or series of related meetups.
- For inspiration about what to put on your meetup page, see the meetup list.
- Apply the "Eventmath meetups" category tag to the page you created.
- Link to your meetup page from the Eventmath Welcome page, under "News."
- Link to your meetup page from the directory below (the most recent meetups go at the top).

Tips[edit | edit source]
- Specific categories are best.
- For example, "Eventmath workshop" is more specific than "Eventmath meetup."
- You can create a new category if needed and make it a subcategory of Eventmath meetups if it's not already listed there.
- Google Forms is convenient for organizing participant registrations.
- If you'd like to find more participants for your meetup, here are some tips for promoting it:
- Contact Eventmath participating organizations.
- Send direct messages to people you know who might be interested.
- Post on social media. Twitter is good for this.
