In the spring of 2015, the Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Massachusetts will award a check for $500 and a certificate to several members of the graduating class from schools in Massachusetts. The awards will be determined on the basis of outstanding achievement or service in the field of mathematics. There is also an award specifically for seniors at vocational, technical, or agricultural schools. Each student must be nominated by a member of the mathematics department of his or her school. One of the awards will be given to a high achieving girl in the memory of Anne Elliot Smith, a mathematics teacher at Buckingham, Browne and Nichols, a member of the ATMIM Board and a 1985 Presidential Award winner.
Each secondary school in Massachusetts is strongly encouraged to nominate a student in each category. Please pay particular attention to the category for which you are nominating a candidate, as the judges cannot change categories. The official forms can be downloaded at www.atmim.net. A committee consisting of board members and other teachers of mathematics will independently review all applications and determine the award recipients.
Please note that the nominations must be received by March 10, 2017.
