The broad goal of IMSc's Enriching Collegiate Education series of workshops is to bring research mathematicians and college teachers together in an effort to enrich mathematics education in colleges. It is noteworthy in this context that IMSc is primarily a research institute. This workshop is part of a Teacher's Enrichment Workshop, one of a series sponsored by the NCM
This week-long workshop is aimed at mathematics teachers in Engineering colleges, to enable them to revisit and update content and/or knowledge. The lectures will cover a few specific topics (see below). The workshop also includes discussion sections where teachers can get doubts cleared and work out exercises (both routine and advanced).
List of speakers and topics :
- Applications of Linear Algebra: P. Sankaran, K. N. Raghavan, IMSc
- Applications of Partial Differential Equations: S. Kesavan, IITM
- Applications of Number Theory (Cryptography) : K. Srinivas, IMSc
Schedule and Notes

The list of confirmed participants is available here.
Other information The workshop is free. Lunch (and tea, coffee, snacks) will be provided on all days of the workshop to all participants free of cost. Certificates of participation will be issued.
This workshop is intended primarily for teachers from local colleges.
Travel and accommodation arrangements are left entirely to the participants. IMSc is unable to provide any assistance towards travel or accomodation. Teachers in areas outside Chennai interested in the TEW series of workshops are advised to look for a workshop closer to them: TEW workshops 2017.
Teachers not in engineering colleges (e.g., arts and science colleges) may apply but preference in selection will be given to teachers from engineering colleges.
