In this article, I show the ten best LinkedIn pages related to mathematics. These pages encourage, promote, and advocate mathematics to a broad and diverse audience across the globe.
For each LinkedIn page, I checked that each page satisfies the following requirements.
- Firstly, each organization has an active and engaging LinkedIn page and published at least one post in the last year.
- Secondly, these are organizations that are primarily engaged in disseminating mathematics and especially the promotion of mathematics worldwide.
- After that, I check that each page has at least 3K followers, and several of its posts have some engagement by other accounts.
- Finally, I give a brief description of each in their own words.
So, let’s find out what makes each page one of the best LinkedIn pages for mathematics.
