BAMM: Buckeye Aha! Math Moments is a new outreach initiative from the Mathematics Department of The Ohio State University. The initiative aims to increase the public awareness, appreciation, and enjoyment of mathematics through a variety of activities, periodic events, and long term outreach projects.
Our intention is to reach to the general public of all ages, genders, ethnic groups, economic situation, and education backgrounds, regardless of whether they already have an interest in math or not.
We want to spread the word of what mathematicians do and to invite the young to pursue a career in math, especially those from underrepresented groups in STEM programs (women, for example).
BAMM is also interested in attracting interest from the OSU Math community in the recreational branch of mathematics. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about recreational math or to be part of the group.
The outreach initiative is supported by the Mathematics Advisory Board, the Department of Mathematics, and the Natural and Mathematical Sciences Division.
