                                 Thank You!

   We appreciate your support of the Mathematical Association of America.
Members like you make MAA the vibrant community of mathematicians that it
                                is today. 

Dear Hemanshu, 


Great talks. A new MAA T-shirt. A movie premiere. Books fresh off the
press. MAA: The Musical²!  Stimulating minicourses. Activities for
students. MAA MathFest has so much to offer to all who attend.


I'm looking forward to being in Madison in August. I hope to see you
there, too.

The Chemistry of Primes

Melanie Matchett Wood, 

University of Wisconsin, Madison 

Friday, August 3, 8:00 p.m. - 8:50 p.m

We are familiar with the prime numbers as those integers that cannot be
factored into smaller integers, but if we consider systems of numbers
larger than the integers, the primes may indeed factor in those larger
systems. We discuss various questions mathematicians ask about how primes
may factor in larger systems; talk about both classical results and
current research on the topic; and give a sense of the kind of tools
needed to tackle these questions.  Mark this Event on your Calendars!


                              PosterFest 2012

A Poster Session of Scholarship by Early Career Mathematicians and
Graduate Students (Friday, August 3, 2012, 3-4:30pm), this poster session
will allow early career mathematicians, including untenured faculty and
graduate students, to present and discuss their scholarly activities with
other attendees in an informal atmosphere. Examples of scholarly
activities suitable for this poster session include expository work,
preliminary reports, scholarship of teaching and learning, and research
reports. Presenters should have their materials prepared in advance and
will be provided with a self-standing, tri-fold tabletop poster
approximately 48 in wide by 36 in high. 

Proposals should be submitted at MailScanner has detected a possible fraud
