# Chat With a Mathematician

Are you a K-12 teacher who would like your students to meet a mathematician? Or would you like to do a fun math game with your students? Perhaps you would like to collaborate with a mathematician to create some math club activities after school?

The AWM wants to work with you to spread the word that math is fun and to make K-12 students aware of the possibility of being a mathematician. Most of our activities are geared towards students in middle and high school but we can talk with you about activities for younger students.

The AWM will facilitate visits (primarily virtual, but in-person when possible) by professional mathematicians, math graduate students, and undergraduate math majors, to K-12 schools and classrooms. Visits might be centered around a mathematical activity while others may be more of a chat with the goal of expanding the horizons of K-12 students to include the possibility of becoming a mathematician. Many K-12 students may not know that you can earn a living doing fun math problems!

Our visitors can either facilitate a math activity for your class, or they can talk with students about their college studies, internships, career goals, or ‘A Day in the Life of a Mathematician’. NOTE: We are not facilitating one-on-one chats, but are providing talks and activities to groups of students and teachers or at workshops
