Communicating by Thinking Effectively in and About Mathematics

More than ever before, vast numbers of careers involve working collaboratively in teams. Communicating effectively within a team and on behalf of a team is critical to moving up the ladder.  The importance of communication skills in the workplace cannot be understated and employers see this skill as an essential need when hiring graduates.   

Communicating TEAMs is a campus-wide leadership opportunity for Morehouse students from every major across the College. TEAM leaders work collaboratively to generate innovative tools for communicating mathematical ideas, and they translate these ideas into written, visual, verbal, & nonverbal forms. In doing so, leaders develop important professional skills and expand mathematical literacy across Morehouse‚Äôs campus. TEAMs help prepare student leaders for a wide variety of professional careers and graduate study. 

Communicating TEAMs is directed by Nathan Alexander, James King, Jr. Visiting Professor of Mathematics Teaching.  To learn a more about this initiative, check out our Summer 2018 Newsletter.
