This program is for local area 8th-10th graders exploring Mathematics in a fun, enriching environment. Please see the attached flyer.



Voting is something we do in a variety of settings, but how we vote is seldom questioned. In this workshop, we'll explore a few different voting procedures from a mathematical perspective as we try to make sense of the paradoxical results that can occur when we vote in more than one way. 

Professor Sam Nelson, CMC, "Knotted or Not"

Abstract: Knot theory is a field of mathematics that studies how strings can be tied in different kinds of knots. Knots have applications in many different areas of science and technology, from chemistry and biology to physics and engineering. In this activity, we will see some of the tools mathematicians use to distinguish different kinds of knots.

Let's Make a Deal: Using Information to Make Decisions, Professor Mark Huber, CMC

11/09/2013 - 10:00am
11/09/2013 - 12:00pm

Understand how extra information affects our knowledge about outcomes can tricky.  In this project we'll look at a game show called Let's Make a Deal and show how information given by the host can help a player to make better decisions.


This event is FREE to all local 8th-10th graders.
