Our Logo

Our logo was created by Doug Mooers, Whatcom CC, for a WAMATYC flag to be displayed at an AMATYC national conference (1987?). Doug describes, "The idea was to utilize mathematical curves and simple bounded spaces to represent the regions of Washington State served by WAMATYC: mountains of Eastern and Western Washington (parabolas), farmland and plains (lines), the Puget Sound (lines with a sail boat). The letters across the upper portion were meant to symbolically unite Community College Math Teachers from all regions of the State."
