High school summer program to show fun side of math
Area high school students can learn about fun and innovative ways to apply their math skills during a no-cost educational program June 20-22 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Math Fun Days 2011 is sponsored by UW-Green Bay’s Department of Natural and Applied Sciences. The three-day program will feature lectures and hands-on workshops from instructors in areas that include the mathematics of juggling, cryptography, mathematical modeling, 3D visualization and more. Students entering grades 10-12, or who have equivalent math background, are welcome to attend.
The program is intended to introduce students to a variety of interesting topics within mathematics, and show them how math can be applied to sciences such as chemistry, physics, geology and biology. It runs from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Monday, June 20 through Wednesday, June 22 on the UW-Green Bay campus.
There is no cost to attend Math Fun Days, but interested students are asked to register by emailing Atife Caglar, associate professor of Natural and Applied Sciences; or Michael McIntire, assistant professor of Natural and Applied Sciences. Students also can fax their information to (920) 465-2376.
