Association of Australian Mathematics Students (AAMS) Launch

At the recent AustMS meeting in Brisbane, a new student association within AustMS was launched. AAMS will be student run and entirely focused on student centric activities. The fundamental and most important objectives of AAMS are to provide support to mathematics students in their studies and research, and to promote and bolster their mathematical knowledge. AAMS’ motto is “empowering the mathematical minds of the future”. All student members of AustMS are now members of AAMS and membership will be free.
