About the Events

Play is a key part of a healthy mathematical perspective, and one that many students, parents, and teachers fail to appreciate.

In this 8 week course, we'll dive in to some of Math for Love's favorite games, including Nim, Hex, and Pico Fermi Bagels. These games are great to just play, but they also have some puzzling questions built-in, many of which have the potential to spiral into some serious problem solving rabbit holes that are compelling to mathematicians at all levels.In addition to providing a fun and rewarding experience on Sundays, we really hope you'll run with these games at home for years to come.

These games provide quite a rich space for play and exploration, so this course is appropriate for new and returning Math for Love students, regardless of their level of mathematical sophistication.

Instructor: Paul Gafni

Class runs on Sundays from April 2nd through May 21, 2017, from 2:05-2:55. Help setting up tables and chairs from 2:00-2:05 is appreciated.
