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.
