Welcome to AMS Blogs

The American Mathematical Society hosts a variety of blogs, edited and authored by mathematicians at different career stages and in various fields of mathematics and education. These blogs offer an opportunity for the authors to share their experiences, opinions, and ideas about mathematics and the profession, and for readers to respond with comments. The opinions expressed on the blogs are the views of the writers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Society. The AMS supports the right of bloggers to express their opinions.

Beyond Reviews: Inside MathSciNet

This blog serves to highlight some of the features of MathSciNet. Posts highlight particularly informative reviews and discuss tips and tricks for navigating MathSciNet, all with the goal of being helpful to users both old and new. Edited by Edward Dunne, Head of Mathematical Reviews®/MathSciNet Division.

Blog on Math Blogs

Two mathematicians tour the mathematical blogosphere. Editors Anna Haensch and Rachel Crowell, both PhD mathematicians, blog on blogs — those connected with media and independent — on topics related to mathematics research, applied mathematics, mathematicians, math in the news, mathematics education, math and the arts and more.

Book Ends

A forum to discuss mathematics books. Open ended topics will be introduced every few weeks, with the aim of inviting comments and possibly postings from readers. Edited by Eriko Hironaka.

Capital Currents

Keeping the mathematics community up-to-date on activities of the AMS Washington Office and issues of interest. Washington Office Director Karen Saxe’s posts include information on activities in Congress that affect the mathematics and the broader science community and opportunities for engaging with Congress and other policy-makers.

e-Mentoring Network

Connecting students and mentors. Editors Ricardo Cortez, Dagan Karp, and Pamela E. Harris, with contributors Erika Camacho, Herbert A. Medina, and Talithia Williams, engage students and mentors–to ask questions, provide feedback, answer questions, and share links on meetings, networking and research opportunities, articles, non-academic career information, and other helpful resources.

Graduate Student Blog

A blog for and by math grad students. Sarah Salmon is Editor-in-Chief. Contributions, comments, and other involvement are welcome.


A blog about underrepresented groups in mathematics. Edited by Adriana Salerno with regular contributing editors Edray Herber Goins, Brian P. Katz, Luis Leyva, and Piper Harron. The main goal of this blog is to discuss issues pertaining to marginalized and underrepresented groups in mathematics. Topics may include conferences targeted at underrepresented groups, inclusive teaching strategies, summaries of current educational research, features about inspiring and successful underrepresented mathematicians, and advice for students, faculty, and researchers at all levels.

On Teaching and Learning Mathematics

Practical “teaching tips,” commentary on current mathematics education research, discussions of social/curricular educational policy, and more. Edited by Mark Saul, with regular contributing editors Art Duval, Steven Klee, Amanda Serenevy and E. Paul Goldenberg. The goal for this blog is to stimulate reflection and dialogue by providing mathematicians with high-quality commentary and resources regarding teaching and learning.

PhD + epsilon

Early-career mathematicians blog about their experiences and challenges. Sara Malec, assistant professor at Hood College, and Beth Malmskog, assistant professor at Villanova University, write about their experiences and challenges as early-career mathematicians. All mathematicians are encouraged to join the community of followers and post comments.

Joint Mathematics Meetings Blog

This blog is about the scientific program sessions, events, and other aspects of the annual Joint Mathematics Meeting of the AMS and MAA. RSS Feed

Retired Blogs

On the market

A job search blog for the mathematical sciences community. Edited by Sue Geller, a professor of mathematics at Texas A&M University.

Visual Insight

Striking images that help explain advanced topics in mathematics. Edited by John Baez, a professor of mathematics at U.C. Riverside.
