Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education
Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME) is a semester-long program in Budapest, Hungary, designed for American and Canadian undergraduates and recent graduates interested in teaching middle school or high school mathematics. BSME was conceived by the founders of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics (above), and the two programs share a common goal--to provide their participants with an opportunity to experience the mathematical and general culture of Hungary. BSME is specifically intended for students who are not only passionate about mathematics, but also the teaching of mathematics. For more information, see the BSME website: bsmeducation.com
Math in Moscow
The Moscow school of mathematics is generally regarded as one of the leading ones in the world. The main feature of the Russian tradition of teaching mathematics has always been the development of a creative approach to studying mathematics from the very outset. Students interested in spending a semester learning mathematics in Moscow can learn more from the program's website: www.mccme.ru/mathinmoscow/. Be sure to also apply for this special scholarship opportunity to attend the Math in Moscow program: www.ams.org/programs/travel-grants/mimoscow.
