About SK Days for Middle and High School Students
For more than twenty years Sonia Kovalevsky Days (SK Days) have been organized by AWM members and held at colleges and universities throughout the country. SK Days consist of a program of workshops, talks, and problem-solving competitions for elementary, middle, and high school students and their teachers, both women and men. The purposes are to encourage young women to continue their study of mathematics; to assist them with the sometimes difficult transitions between mathematics in elementary and middle school, middle and high school, or high school and college; to assist the teachers of women mathematics students; and to encourage colleges and universities to develop more extensive cooperation with K-12 schools in their area.
Below we have compiled a list of resources to support those interested in hosting an SK Day. If you have any questions, please contact the AWM office at email@example.com
