2015 Ignite at NWMC

I delivered my second Ignite Talk at the 54th Annual Northwest Mathematics Conference in Whistler, Canada this past weekend.

I start my Ignite saying:
Take 10 seconds to think of the most forgettable parts of your math class.

I am so grateful for the wonderful BCAMT program committee (<---follow them). They worked extremely hard to put a great conference together. Thank you Chris, Marc, Sandra, and Selina for inviting me out. Whistler is so beautiful this time of year and I learned a lot from the great sessions and speakers. It was a pleasure to hang with some old math friends and make new ones too!

There were some other great Ignite talks and I hope that someone part of the BCAMT was able to record them in order to post online. To the entire Ignite team: Marian, Ron, Robert, Allison, Janice, Carole and Marc (emcee). WE DID IT!


*P.S. Here's my first Ignite talk.


  1. This was such a good talk. I really enjoyed both the content and your presentation style. Great job!

    1. Thanks amigo! Yours was great too. Can't wait to see it.

  2. Thanks for helping make "The Northwest" a success. I loved your talk, as well those of the six other speakers. Each speaker amazed me. For four of the seven speakers, this was their first Ignite talk. You'd never know. This was also a first time for many attendees -- the first time a BCAMT hosted NWMC has included an Ignite session in the program. We were thrilled with both the turnout (standing room only; 400 delegates) and the reaction to the session. Each talk was recorded and I'll let you know when they are posted.

    1. I'm glad to be part of such a successful and meaningful experience. All the talks were great and I'm sure everyone's blood pressure has leveled out now. Thanks for creating the time and space for us to share what we're passionate about.
