The UMAP Journal: Current Issue Is Now Free to Student and Educator Members

We are pleased to announce that the current issue of The UMAP Journal is available free online, with previous issues available electronically with COMAP full membership. 

What Is The UMAP Journal?

COMAP's Undergraduate Mathematics and Its Applications (UMAP) Journal is published quarterly and blends contemporary teaching modules with commentaries and articles to create a boldly different periodical. 

Each issue puts several real-world problems under a mathematical lens and demonstrates how real people are using mathematics in their jobs and lives. Whether it is exploring an elegant explanation of price-elasticity of illegal drugs, or the strategic implications of disarming the U.S. nuclear arsenal, The UMAP Journal is the modeling journal for anyone interested in applied mathematics. 

How to Download the Current Issue

With your free COMAP Student or Educator membership, you can download the current issue of UMAP every quarter. Here’s all you need to do:

  1. Login or sign up for a free individual membership.
  2. Go to The UMAP Journal page to download the current issue.

That’s it! Previous issues are available electronically with COMAP full membership. COMAP also offers a print subscription as an add-on to full members.

Don’t Forget About Consortium!

Consortium is our newsletter that’s published twice a year. It includes teaching activities with commentaries, articles, and contest results and information to bring the excitement of mathematical modeling to high school classrooms. Plus, each issue contains the Pull-Out section, a reproducible classroom activity centered on a real-world modeling problem. 

Like The UMAP Journal, the current issue of Consortium is available free online. So you’ll definitely want to check that out, too!
