Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics: Summer Faculty Positions This summer, change the lives of talented middle school students from underserved backgrounds: teach them what mathematics really is. Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), a project of the Art of Problem Solving Foundation, is seeking instructors for a program that gives everyone a chance to excel in mathematics. Faculty design and teach their own courses to bright, underserved middle school students. During summer 2017, we will run two programs, a residential program on college campuses in the Hudson Valley, and a day program in New York City.
Residential Program (BEAM 7). Ideal candidates include college or university professors (as well as graduate students) with strong teaching backgrounds, and middle or high school teachers with strong mathematics backgrounds. We've found that the community of teachers that we create, bringing together instructors from across many different academic areas, is one of the program's strengths and provides a great experience for all participants. Good candidates will work well on a close-knit team and will be able to bring unique curriculum perspectives to the program. Experience with other extracurricular outreach programs (such as math summer programs or math circles, MATHCOUNTS, programming workshops, or similar) are also a plus. We will provide mentorship, textbooks, and other resources as needed. We hope that you will join us!
