## April is Mathematics Awareness Month

April is Mathematics Awareness Month (MAM); this year's theme is the "Mathematics of Sustainability." MAM includes two nationwide initiatives: Sustainability Counts! provides K-16 math educators and students with a range of model lessons that connect mathematics and sustainability. The showcase lesson is the Energy Challenge. Students will learn about the mathematics of energy use in their school/college and then develop and implement an action plan to reduce energy use. The Speakers' Bureau is a group of mathematicians, scientists, and sustainability professionals available to speak to school audiences on the sustainability of mathematics. Free posters and other resources are available. Learn more.
