Math Like Never Before

Sometimes, it looks like math is all about boring calculations and headaches. We're here to show that there is another side of math — one full of fun, laughter, and beauty.

Joy of Collaboration

Math is usually a solitary or competitive activity. Our festivals bring people together to collaboratively work on fun and meaningful problems. We create a community around joyful math.

Delight of Discovery

Math is more about the journey than the destination. We show students that they have the power to make their own discoveries and chart their own paths through the learning process.

Free, Virtual Classroom Visits to Promote Fun Math

Calabasas, Calif. — The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival (JRMF) is excited to announce the launch of virtual classroom visits, a free service that will bring game-based math to low-income schools in the U.S. Research shows that game-based learning increases critical thinking and problem-solving skills*, and the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival will use math games during its visits to engage and educate K-12 students.
