The mission of SIGMAA EM is to provide a forum for those interested in solving problems arising from environmental sources. SIGMAA EM also promotes awareness of environmental issues and especially the role that mathematics plays in analyzing such issues. Joining SIGMAA EM is as easy as checking a box on your MAA membership form.

If you have questions about SIGMAA EM activities or this site, contact Ben Galluzzo. For general questions, contact the MAA Membership Department.

To get involved in the leadership of the group, contact the current SIGMAA Coordinator. We can use your help whether through organizing activities, serving as an officer, or simply providing feedback on past activities or ideas for future directions. We want you to be involved!

SIGMAA-EM sponsored an MAA CPS Session on Integrating the Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 in the College Mathematics Curriculum. Click here to see the abstracts and presentation slides from those talks.
