**Math Resources for Students**

**Check out American Math Society (AMS) math resources for
undergrads, as well as student sites at the AMS, MAA , and SIAM. **

**Note**: Some websites open in a new window.

**If you are interested in teaching in high-needs secondary schools, consider one of the
Noyce Science Teaching Fellowship Programs. **There are Noyce programs all over the country, and here is information. If you have questions, just

This
fun web site, ** www.whydomath.org**, 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 informative!

Here's the math awareness month web site.

**Mathematical Societies (which have general information about math as well as info about meetings, books and journals, etc.):**

**General advice and support for graduate school and beyond**

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

Here is a good article about how to get into math graduate school (despite what it says, if you haven't published, it is OK, although it is a good idea to try research to see if you like it!).

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

*A Ph.D. **is not enough** *is a guide to people beginning their career in Science.

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 graduate students and 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**

MAA Career Information and Career Profiles

Society for Industrial and Applied Math info about applied math careers

SIAM has a useful brochure on careers outside academia and an in-depth report on the mathematics needed in industry today.

Check out this and this for careers outside of academia.

A neat site at U. Georgia giving info. about math jobs

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

**Tufts Career Center ****has information about careers, resumes, internships, etc. formation about careers ****and internships (check out the TIP book).**

glassdoor.com gives ratings of companies from employees' perspective
