Event to encourage discussions about math between students and community

July 20, 2018
An event from the College Access Program (CAP) on July 25 is an opportunity for CAP students to have conversations with community members about math and math education. 

CAP is run through the School of Education's office of Student Diversity Programs. CAP is a three-week summer enrichment residential program for first-generation college students or students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The program is open to 9th and 10th graders who have completed their high school academic year.

The event is titled, "A Gathering of Mathematical Problem Solving," and will be held on July 25 from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. in the Educational Sciences Building, room 159.

Students will present a poster of their favorite, most memorable, or even most frustrating math problem. Students have been encouraged to not give solutions to their problems, but instead to speak about their approach and make suggestions, to encourage attendees to try to solve the problems and have mathematical experiences themselves.
