Why we love JRMF

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.
