Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Applied Mathematics Education.

This meeting will be held jointly with the SIAM Conference on Mathematics of Planet Earth. A single registration will cover both ED16 and MPE16.


Presentations at the Conference

Selected presentations from the 2016 SIAM Conferences on Applied Mathematics Education have been captures and are available as slides with synchronized audio. In addition there are PDF’s of the slides available for printing. View presentation slides with synchronized audio.


Statement on Inclusiveness

As a professional society, SIAM is committed to providing an inclusive climate that encourages the open expression and exchange of ideas, that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and that is welcoming and comfortable to all members and to those who participate in its activities. In pursuit of that commitment, SIAM is dedicated to the philosophy of equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, disabilities, veteran status, field of expertise, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and participants in SIAM activities to work towards this commitment.

The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group on Applied Mathematics Education is to advance the development and practice of educational programs, courses, and resources in applied mathematics. This will include but not be limited to organizing conferences, maintaining a curated web-based repository of resources in modeling, computational and applied mathematics, and mathematical sciences, including the applications domains. The potential constituencies of the SIAG will include faculty members in colleges and universities who are interested in applied and computational mathematics and have a strong interest in educational innovation, practice, improvement and faculty development; mathematics teacher educators, especially for in-service professional development; and graduate students in applied mathematical areas with ambitions for careers in academia with a strong education component.


Funding Agency


SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of this conference.
