The Geometry Center

A major mission of the NSF-sponsored University of Minnesota Geometry Center is to support, develop, and promote the communication of mathematics at all levels. In a word, we are committed to education. In the past year, the Geometry Center has increased its efforts to reach and to educate different and diverse groups of people about the beauty and utility of mathematics. This article presents a few of our recent efforts to reach the general public, professional mathematicians, high school teachers, talented youth, and underrepresented groups in mathematics.
