The 32nd annual Frostburg State University Mathematics Symposium, entitled "Little Picture - Big Picture: Perspectives on Mathematics," will be held at FSU on Friday, April 25.
Designed to serve mathematics educators at all levels, the Symposium usually brings to campus more than 100 mathematics teachers from the tri-state area. The keynote speaker for this year's meeting is award-winning teacher and author Edward B. Burger of Williams College, who will speak on "What to Teach and How Not to Teach It: Some Thoughts on Both the Little Picture and Big Picture." In addition, the symposium will feature talks on geometry, the history of mathematics, statistics, use of technology and other topics of interest.
Among the speakers are FSU professors Renny Azzi, Mark Hughes, Fritz Kessler, Kurtis Lemmert, Lance Revennaugh, Vaughn Snyder, Joyce Wheaton and Gerard Wojnar.
