Math Day is a one day event for students in grades 8-12 who enjoy solving puzzles, figuring out things, and learning mathematics. Math Day is comprised of a variety of hands-on workshops on math topics "beyond the classroom" as well as a panel discussion on how mathematics is important in a variety of careers. Some of the popular topics in the past were counting to infinity, math and music, fractals, and tic tac toe on a torus.
Students can come on their own or with their teachers. We encourage teachers to bring students on a field trip to this event. If you attended Math Day in the past, we encourage you to come again, and bring a friend! The workshops are different every year.
