Like most Western countries, we do not train enough high level scientists. Since interest for the sciences generally develops during high school or (in Quebec) cegep, the Institut des sciences mathématiques and the Centre de recherches mathématiques have responded to this challenge by launching Accromath. The goal of this project is to attract more young people to the mathematical sciences, and to stimulate their teachers by offering them lively, relevant, topical material. While math is the motor behind numerous high tech revolutions, it is also one of the richest cultures ever produced by humanity, going back thousands of years. A good mathematical culture is therefore both practical and the sign of a good general culture. Accromath aims to transmit this message and to incite more young people to delve into this fascinating world.
