Fifty of the most engaging professional mathematicians from across the country will converge on Tempe, AZ on Saturday, March 13, 2010 to run a mathematics festival for students in the Phoenix metro area. There will be many tables with exciting mathematical activities set up in a staging area around the mathematics building at the Tempe campus of Arizona State University. These activities will range from levels that middle school students will enjoy, to levels that will challenge the brightest high school students and even professional mathematicians. There will also be satellite rooms where engaging mathematicians will run interactive sessions describing/exploring various mathematical concepts.
The festival is free to the public, but we ask for advance registration, so we can plan to have the right amount of food. Please go to:
