Mini-intensive workshop on Saturday Feb. 10:
9:30 – 3:30 in SAS Hall, Room 2102, on the NCSU campus. Featured presenters: Natasha Rozhkovskaya (more info, click here) topic: Combinatorics and probability of dice. “Everyone played games of chance involving dice throwing, but not everyone knows that not all dice are equal. Dice are an amazing mathematical object with simple but remarkable properties. At the workshop we will look into curious dice-related math and basic probability questions”
and Hector Rosario – Conjecture and Proof: Nurturing Creativity in the K-12 Classroom In this workshop we will share guidelines for introducing the elements of conjecture and proof in the regular classroom, as well as problems and activities that naturally blend into traditional curricula, yet exposes learners to the joy of doing mathematics.
Please register if you plan to come: we need to have a correct count for lunch! To register, click here.
