About the Events

If you draw a square on graph paper, it's easy to find squares with "area" 1, 4, 9, 16, 25... But are these "square numbers" really all you can find? It turns out, there are actually a lot more!

 

Draw 16 dots in an 4 by 4 grid. Play connect the dots to make a polygon. What is the largest number of sides you can make?

 

Our theme for this session is Geometry. Expect lots of creative approaches to getting students talking about ideas of area and perimeter, polygons and polyhedra, shapes and sizes. The examples above are barely scratching the surface.

In Math for Love programming, we aim to give students genuine mathematical experiences. That means being curious, asking questions, making conjectures, Aha! moments, and convincing peers to believe your ideas.

 

 

Instructor: Paul Gafni
