Statement of Solidarity
Our work is all about the power of communities to bring diverse perspectives together to solve problems. We are a Special Project of the American Institute of Mathematics and we wholeheartedly endorse their statement regarding the murders of George Floyd, Ahmed Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, and others.
Stretch your Brain!
In an ordinary summer, we would be seeing so many of you in our math circles camps. All of us at the AIMC miss you–we miss your laughter and smiles, your creativity and energy, and your awesome problem solving powers. It’s important to keep your mind active! So we’ve developed the first MIND STRETCHER for you to share with friends and families. Let us know what you think. Are you able to solve any of these? Do you have a puzzle to contribute to our next Mind Stretcher? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know!
AIMC was well represented at the AISES Annual Meeting in Milwaukee in 2019

Fowler and Klein Collaborate with the Kennedy Museum of Art
The AIMC’s Henry Fowler and Bob Klein, together with Sally and Perfelia Fowler, began work with the staff at the Kennedy Museum of Art, to co-curate a Spring 2020 exhibit that highlights connections between the Kennedy’s extensive 700+ collection of Diné weavings and the tapestries of mathematics. Details to follows, though pictures can be found on the Our Stories page. Many thanks to the amazing staff at the KMA for their generous willingness to share and to create together.
