How to create an account[edit | edit source]

If you already have a Wikipedia account, that will work on Wikiversity as well. In fact, an account on any one Wikimedia project will work across all projects. If you don’t have an account yet, you can create a Wikiversity account for free. It’s possible to edit without an account, but we highly recommend creating one. Here are a few of the things an account allows you to do:

The National Numeracy Network[edit | edit source]

  • Website: http://www.nnn-us.org/
  • Description: The National Numeracy Network (NNN) promotes education that integrates quantitative skills across all disciplines and at all levels. To this end, the Network supports faculty development, curriculum design, assessment strategies, education research and systemic change. The NNN promotes Eventmath to its membership, has hosted a facilitated discussion on Eventmath at the recent NNN conference, and organizes edit-a-thons.

The Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America on Quantitative Literacy (SIGMAA QL)[edit | edit source]

  • Website: http://sigmaa.maa.org/ql/
  • Description: SIGMAA QL is the Special Interest Group of the MAA which focuses on Quantitative Literacy (QL). SIGMAA QL aims to provide a structure within the mathematics community to identify the prerequisite mathematical skills for quantitative literacy (QL) and find innovative ways of developing and implementing QL curricula. The SIGMAA on QL sponsored a talk on Eventmath at MathFest in 2021, and has shared Eventmath with its membership, via its message board.

First Year Math and Stats in Canada (FYMSiC)[edit | edit source]

  • Website: https://firstyearmath.ca/
  • Description: FYMSiC is a community of post-secondary mathematics and statistics instructors, which also welcomes high school teachers, international colleagues, members of teaching and learning support centres, and anyone else interested in teaching. Although our primary focus is on teaching first year math and stats courses in universities and colleges, in our meetings, workshops and conferences (check our web page!) we discuss broad issues related to teaching. FYMSiC has hosted a presentation on Eventmath and has promoted Eventmath workshops to its members.

Skew The Script[edit | edit source]

  • Website: https://skewthescript.org/
  • Description: Skew The Script is a nonprofit that provides free, socially relevant math lessons to over 20,000 high school math teachers. Lessons cover topics that range from gerrymandering and food deserts to sports and online dating. Current course offerings include AP Statistics, AP Precalculus, Algebra II, and Algebra I. Our two-fold mission: 1) Boost math engagement and achievement among students from underserved backgrounds, 2) Prepare students from all backgrounds to think critically as citizens.

  • User: Professorbrendan
  • Bio: I am also one of two Wikimedia grantees working on this project. I've been teaching undergraduate mathematics for 7+ years (12+ including graduate school) and have experience using current events articles in the classroom to teach quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills. I hope this project will make it easier for teachers and students to explore how mathematical thinking is useful in our modern world.

Jyotika Wadhwa[edit | edit source]

  • User: jodubdub
  • Bio: I am a software engineer turned finance professional - both professions that rely heavily on quantitative reasoning. I am excited about participating in a project that uses real-life examples to further mathematical literacy.

Heather Charles[edit | edit source]

  • User: Heathercharles
  • Bio: I'm a middle school science and math teacher in Tucson, AZ, with a bachelor's degree in physics from Northern Arizona University. I've been teaching secondary math for 5 years and middle school math for 4!

Suzie Garfield[edit | edit source]

  • User: Suzie Garfield
  • Bio: I’m interested in informal education, particularly in on-the-job and more structured business training and in promoting quantitative literacy by embedding it into the stories I tell as a professional and business storyteller. My experience has been in business, technology, education, and performance. In the past, I’ve worked as a computer programmer and classroom teacher. Now I am mostly a consultant, trainer, storyteller, coach, and mentor.

Linda McGuire[edit | edit source]

  • User: Lindamc29
  • Bio: I have been teaching the full spectrum of undergraduate mathematics courses for over 20 years. I also teach interdisciplinary courses in other programs such as writing, women and gender studies, and social justice. I try my best to cultivate collaborative learning spaces and I am hopeful that the Eventmath wiki will be a site of collaboration with other teaching-focused colleagues around the globe.

Asia Matthews[edit | edit source]

  • User: Asia.Matthews
  • Bio: I teach undergraduates how to think mathematically and to use this knowledge to figure out how to be in this world as one of many. I’ve been teaching undergraduate mathematics since my Master’s degree in 2005 and I like to push my students to be mathematically creative. As of 2022 I have been teaching at Quest University Canada for +/- 5 years.

Phillip Andreae[edit | edit source]

  • User: Phillip Andreae
  • Bio: I teach courses including statistics, calculus, proofs, and geometry at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. My background is in differential geometry, but recently I have gotten interested in math and democracy, especially gerrymandering and voting methods. I enjoy math when it makes sense, and I want to help students make their own sense out of math, including math in the news
