UPCOMING EVENTS

MCLS Brown Bag Events

The MCLS Trainee Board is organizing Brown Bag events that are open to everyone. 

Dear MCLS Community,

Just a brief reminder that our next brown bag with Dr. Erin Maloney is tomorrow Friday, May 29 at 11am EST // 4pm BST. The talk will run 30-40 minutes to allow ample time for questions and discussion. You can join the talk here pitt.zoom.us/j/9634841330. Again, the talk will be recorded for those who cannot attend. See below for an abstract:

Math Anxiety, Math Achievement, and Mathematical Well-Being
Skills in mathematics and science are central to innovation and productivity growth. These are, in turn, necessary for improving standards of living in Canada. In this talk, I will discuss a major barrier to success and well-being in mathematics – math anxiety. Defined as feelings of fear, tension, and apprehension surrounding mathematical problem solving, math anxiety is argued to be an impediment to success in mathematics and interest in math and science-related careers. I will present a series of studies that have helped to elucidate how one may come to develop math anxiety and who may be most at risk.

Also, several people have asked about the recording from the last brown bag with Drs. Jasmine Ma and Korbinian Moeller on Embodied Cognition. That video has been uploaded to YouTube and can be found here: youtu.be/JkM4YKMOTBc.
