<-- ---+++ Doing Math?

Doing Math? ZigZag Mentoring may be for you! The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) empowers women and other underrepresented groups in Mathematics. The ZigZag Mentoring Program sponsors planned events; one-on-one mentoring relationships; mentoring experience for graduate students and accomplished undergraduates; and a community of similarly motivated people.

Favorite Mathematicians

Contribute to our list of Favorite Mathematicians! Famous or obscure, some are largely unknown because they were women, engineers, surveyors or some combination of less recognized groups. Check out the list. You can add to the list if you have a Cornell login. In most cases, the name in the list corresponds to the primary Wikipedia page for that person so you can readily learn more. We draw from this list to name Breakout Rooms in the MSC Zoom Meeting.

Zoom Configuration Tips:

Use internet audio if you can. To avoid audio feedback issues, when you enter the meeting your settings default to audio only, with your audio muted.
You can elect to turn on your audio as desired.
Recommended: Bookmark this page to enter the meeting
or use the short link msc2.ref2.net (which redirects to this page).
The Zoom Meeting ID may change.

For tips, tricks, and Gotchas about Zoom, check out ZoomSkilz.ref2.net . We are supporting people in time zones around the planet and are trying to keep the General Math Support Center Zoom Meeting alive 24/7. You can join the General Math Support Center Zoom Meeting at any time, with tutors available according to the published schedule. Someone may be in the Meeting at other times. Our schedule will adapt as we learn what you need.

Want to give us feedback and/or voice concerns?

We very much appreciate any feedback you may have, so we can be more supportive and helpful in these weird times! To do that, you can:

  1. talk to any of the tutors in the Zoom meeting
  2. email Henrique (hcz5) or Cissy (yh383) or Dick (ref2)
  3. use this anonymous form: https://forms.gle/jAchmvfzrhEHB1Lp8
If you have any concerns, especially on circumstances that may prevent you from getting the help you need, please make sure to email Henrique or Cissy or Dick about it (else, it'll be harder for us to get back to you and figure something out!)
