The speakers are Dan Bossaller, Erik Hieta-Aho, Rabi K. C., Rebin Muhammad, and Javier Ronquillo Rivera.  All are mathematics graduate students here at Ohio University.

Abstract:  In this roundtable-style seminar, Dan, Erik, Rabi, Rebin, and Javier with share with us their experiences teaching students mathematics in various summer programs that lasted between 3 and 5 weeks.  Erik was involved in the CTY Johns Hopkins program teaching 7th and 8th graders cryptology.  Rebin worked with Ohio University Upward Bound teaching high school students precalculus and calculus, including many math circle style activities.  Javier was part of the BEAM (Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics) program teaching 7th graders a class on combinatorics and proofs as well as a class on symmetries, mosaics, and dancing.  Dan worked with the JHU Center for Talented Youth teaching 5th and 6th graders inductive and deductive reasoning.  And you’ll just have to come to the seminar to find out what Rabi did as well as learn more about their experiences!!
