Mathematicians at Work

Mathematics with a Human Face is a project sponsored by a grant from the Endowment Fund of the Canadian Mathematical Society awarded to Judi McDonald and Harley Weston. The goal is to highlight the human face of mathematics and illustrate that it is an exciting discipline with a rich history, a thriving present and a vibrant future.

Careers in Math poster

The first phase is the creation of the careers poster (shown on the left) and the careers quilt on Math Central.

The poster was designed by Bruce Weild Illustration and Design and printed by Houghton Boston. Support for the printing and distribution was obtained from The Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex systems (MITACS) , The Faculty of Science at the University of Windsor, and the Centre for Information Security and Cryptography (CISaC). The background graphic on the poster comes from a triangle problem which was shown to us by Nathalie Sinclair. The graphic itself was produced by Matthew McKague. The profiles attached to the careers quilt were written by Lori Evert.

Free copies (for educators):

We want to thank the people who helped in this phase of Mathematics with a Human Face, in particular the mathematicians who volunteered to appear on the poster or the careers quilt.     —Judi and Harley
