We are looking for markers for the 2012 Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC). While some math background is helpful markers are NOT required to have a strong math background to help with the marking as answer keys will be provided.
In addition, we do require some strong mathematicians for the more challenging questions on the competition, therefore we are looking for markers from a wide range of backgrounds.
The tests will be marked on Saturday, November 17th and the exact locations will be provided closer to the date, but we will require markers at all three UofT locations (UTM, UTSC and St George), whichever is more convenient.
If you are interested in helping please fill out the form located at: https://math.escalator.utoronto.ca/home/blog/comc-volunteers/ and we will get back to you with further details shortly!

The Fields Institute is looking for graduate student volunteers to work with gifted high school students on Saturday afternoons throughout this academic year. For more information, please visit http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/programs/mathed/math_circles/index.html It's a very rewarding program and you will either assist a junior group (grades 9 and 10) in working on problem sets in a lecture setting, or work with a senior group (grades 11 and 12) on preparing for competitions. There is also the opportunity to travel this year to Pennsylvania for a competition. If interested, please contact Luke Chang, Manager of Operations, Fields Institute, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also copy me if you do respond. Thanks, Ida

Let’s Talk Science Sandy Lake Summer Camp 2012
The Let’s Talk Science Outreach Program at U of T St. George would like to announce that they will be partnering with Sandy Lake First Nation to run a science camp in July 2012. Our first Sandy Lake Summer Camp (2011) was a huge success. A story about last year’s event can be found here http://www.news.utoronto.ca/let%E2%80%99s-talk-science-st-george-heads-north-science-camp
Last summer our major focus was on nutrition and diabetes. This year we have been asked by the community to cover this topic again, however, we have also been asked to include other scientific disciplines/ topics in camp 2012 content. Applications will be open to Let’s Talk Science Volunteers at the St. George Campus, University of Toronto, that are studying under the following disciplines: Earth Sciences (Ecology, Environmental and Botany), Engineering, Physical Sciences (Physics and Chemistry) and Information Technology.
Two to three volunteers will be chosen to participate in the camp curriculum development and testing and to travel to Sandy Lake for camp implementation. Additional details of what will be expected of successful applications will be included in a meeting that will be schedule by March 15, 2012. Applications are due April 1, 2012 and successful applicants will be notified by May 1, 2012. Please submit all applications with signatures intact (as 1 PDF file) to email@example.com.
All applicants interested in travelling to Sandy Lake will be required to:
● Be a registered Let’s Talk Science volunteer. ***The Let’s Talk Science portal system has changed this year so you must be on the most up to date portal.
● Have completed a minimum of 3 outreach activities through Let’s Talk Science between 2009-2012.
● Hold a degree in or are currently studying: Earth Sciences (Ecology, Environmental and Botany), Engineering, Physical Sciences (Physics and Chemistry) or Information Technology.
● Have experience working with Aboriginal peoples and/or communities (not mandatory, but desired)
● Have experience working with children (ages 4 +) and youth.
● Submit a letter of intent, updated CV and 2 reference letters. Community/ volunteer reference should make up at least 1 reference.
A separate application process will be outlined for Let’s Talk Science volunteers from disciplines not outlined above who are interested in Toronto-based program planning and implementation support. Notice for this call for applications will be sent out in mid-March.
Please note that volunteer travel is dependent on fundraising, therefore, the final number of volunteers travelling cannot be confirmed at this time.
If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
