Title: Critical Mass
Abstract: The mathematical sciences community is finally reaching a critical mass with regard to improving undergraduate mathematics education on a national scale. I will highlight recent efforts that have helped bring us to this point and implications for community colleges, in particular. I will also provide specific, practical ideas to help ensure continued progress toward providing meaningful mathematical experiences for all our students.
