Pathways is a Los Angeles area mathematics outreach program based in the Department of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College. All of our volunteers are professional mathematicians who are eager to share their love of mathematics with elementary, junior high, and high school students.
Our 40-50 minute presentations are designed to expose students to parts of mathematics that are often unseen outside of college, but that are nonetheless accessible and often incredibly eye-opening. There is absolutely no cost for a visit from Pathways, and no group is too big or too small. We are also happy to work with individual teachers to tailor our presentations to meet the needs of different groups.
If you are interested in having Pathways visit your class or math club, or if you have any questions about Pathways, please send an email to pathways AT math.hmc.edu. You may also want to check out our Pathways Presentations page where you can find detailed information (e.g., titles, abstracts, and suggested grade levels) about several of the talks listed to the left. We hope to hear from you soon!
