Math Resources for Students

Check out math resources for undergrads, as well as student sites at the AMS and MAA


New! Here's a very cool opportunity for math and science students who want to teach middle- and high-school math and science!
Noyce Science Teaching Fellowship Program at Tufts University.

Find more information here and If you have questions, just e-mail me.

Check out these articles in the Tufts Journal and the Tufts Daily about our program.


This fun new web site,, describes fun mathematics (including my field, tomography) and what mathematicians do.

Reasons to major in math: (Check out this University of Georgia site) It’s fun!

Here's the math awareness month web site.

General advice and support for graduate school and beyond

Here are two good books (1 and 2) for survival in grad school and beyond.

If you'd like suggestions about mentoring and research development for grad. students and beyond, check here.

The Math. Association of America has a teaching support program for new college and university profs, Project NEXT.

The Mathematical Research Communities is a research support program for recent Ph.D.s. It provides summer conferences in a range of fields and then provides longer term mentoring and support. I was involved with the 2009 Inverse Problems conference, and it was a blast!

Some Free and legal math books are here.


Math Careers

Here's a good reason to consider a math career if you like math (mathematician is always rated one of the most satisfying careers).


General information about careers:

K-12 Teaching


NEW!! Tufts has received $2.1 million from the Noyce/NSF Scholarship Program to support students to teach middle- and high-school math and science. We are now recruiting Math and science majors to receive a full scholarship to the Tufts Master of Arts in Teaching program and a stipend and special mentoring while they teach in urban schools.
Click here for info!!
If you have questions, just e-mail me.

Here's info on the Noyce program and other Noyce sites.
