About the program

Women Doing Math (WDM) is a program that will run during the academic year 2016-17 at Texas State University thanks to the support of the Tensor Program for Women and Mathematics of the Mathematical Association of America.

WDM aims to promote career opportunities in mathematics and to encourage female students to benefit from them. However, most events in this program are open to females and males, and we invite everyone to join our mailing list to receive updates on different events and opportunities.

Each month WDM will focus on the work of a prominent woman doing mathematics, either from academia or from industry. Throughout the month there will be activities aimed at engaging students in her area of research, creating awareness of her contribution, and sparking interest in her career. The month will conclude with a one-day visit to campus from the featured woman.

Each month there will be a problem solving contest in which female graduate and undergraduate students will team up to solve math problems. Teams submitting correct solutions will be recognized with diplomas and the best solutions will be awarded prizes.

During the campus visit, each of the mathematicians will participate at a reception during which students will have the opportunity to get to know with the speaker. The visits will also include research seminars, open to everyone, and the opportunity for ten previously selected female math students to dine with the speaker.
