2022 AWM Student Chapter Award for Community Outreach
AWM Association for Women in Mathematics

The AWM Student Chapter at University of California at Riverside has been selected as the winner of the 2022 AWM Student Chapter Award for Community Outreach. Each year, the Award  for Community Outreach highlights one student chapter for outstanding engagement with the  local community. The AWM Student Chapter of the University of California at Riverside receives this award in recognition of the varied, thoughtful, and original community outreach activities. The chapter’s efforts focused on connecting mathematics to the arts, k-12 outreach, and working with other campus entities. Highlights included the virtual conference Women in MathArt: Research, Creativity, and Teaching; a collaboration with the campus poetry club to explore mathematical poetry; participation in the campus Dia de los Muertos celebration by sharing entries for women mathematicians who have passed away; a platonic solids event for middle school girls through a STEM role-models program; and working with the education department to help prepare for a high school Sonia Day. The chapter’s efforts show a strong commitment to building community among the members, at UC Riverside and with the broader community.

UCR Mathematics in Curriculum Innovation
Learning Lab Riverside, Saddleback, Yuba - A New Math Gateway

The Department of Mathematics at UCR is funded by the Grand Challenge of California Learning Lab for over $1.2 million to develop a new mathematics gateway. The project’s aim is to re-conceptualize how calculus is taught and to open a wide and inclusive STEM gateway. The materials developed under this project will be shared as Open Educational Resources to benefit all students and educators. Over ten faculty members from three different higher education institutes participate in developing this project. Project PI is Dr.  Yat Sun Poon (UCR Mathematics), Project Director and co-PI is Dr. David Weisbart (UCR Mathematics). For more information, please visit its website:


UCR Microtutorial 2

The Microtutorials in Mathematics project team at UCR has conceived a new approach to producing a collection of micro-tutorials as supplementary instructional and learning materials. The intent is to assist the students and instructors to connect calculus with applications in various subject matters. The students could use them freely on any topics of their choice.  The videos are produced with follow-up questions to enable instructors to flip their classrooms if desired. For details, please visit its website:
