Education and Community Outreach
In collaboration with EKU, KSU, KCTCS, NKU, and over 50 school districts across the state, Paul Eakin and Ken Kubota are working to prepare Kentucky high school students for college. An important component of KYOTE is the ability to deliver placement tests to students while they are still in school and have time to take additional coursework to prepare for college study of mathematics.
- Bardstown Partnership Enhancement Project
Carl Lee and David Royster have worked with middle and high school mathematics teachers and special education teachers to increase student success and enhance articulation across grade levels. This effort is funded by a grant from AT&T.
- Geometry Assessments for Teachers
Carl Lee participates in a multi-institutional project to develop assessments to be given to secondary mathematics teachers of geometry.
- Kentucky Early Mathematics Testing Program
High school students can use the Kentucky Early Mathematics Testing Program (KEMTP) to help them assess their preparedness for learning mathematics at the high school level.
- Appalachian Math and Science Partnership
The AMSP program seeks to demonstrate improved student achievement in mathematics and science through the support of partnerships that unite the efforts of teachers, administrators, guidance counselors and parents in local schools with administrators and faculty at area colleges and universities.
The Appalachian Collaborative Center for Learning, Assessment, and Instruction in Mathematics (ACCLAIM) will build a mathematics infrastructure in the Appalachian regions of Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia, providing a model and resources for other isolated, rural, poverty-stricken areas across the country.
- High School Mathematics Day
A day for high school students to visit the University of Kentucky campus and learn about mathematics.
- Central Kentucky Mathematics Circles
An opportunity for school students to learn about mathematics in a friendly and informal environment.
Faculty from the department with an interest in various aspects of outreach to the community include:
