8th Graders Attend Math Festival

On Friday, September 11, 8th grade math students attended the Julia Robinson Math Festival hosted by the Rocky Mountain Math Teachers’ Circle and the University of Colorado-Denver. The festival is a form of education outreach and enrichment through which mathematicians and mathematical scientists share their passion with K-12 teachers and students.The Circles combine significant content with a setting that encourages a sense of discovery and excitement about mathematics through problem solving and interactive exploration. Ideal problems are low-threshold, high-ceiling; they offer a variety of entry points and can be approached with minimal mathematical background, but lead to deep mathematical concepts and can be connected to advanced mathematics.
