ASU MATH DAY is a fantastic field trip opportunity for motivated sophomore, junior, and senior level high school math students and their teachers — and it’s FREE! Workshops, panel discussions, complimentary lunch, and a featured presentation are included in this math-and-fun-filled day at ASU. This event is geared toward small groups of students and their teacher attending (not for individual students).
Eugenia Cheng - Featured speaker
Mathematician and author of "How to Bake Pi: An Edible Exploration of the Mathematics of Mathematics"
MATHEMATICS CAN BE TASTY!
It’s a way of thinking, and not just about numbers. Through unexpectedly connected examples from music, juggling, and baking, I will show that math can be made fun and intriguing for all, through hands-on activities, examples that everyone can relate to, and funny stories. I'll present surprisingly high-level mathematics, including some advanced abstract algebra usually only seen by math majors and graduate students. There will be a distinct emphasis on edible examples.
