This festival offers students in grades 5-10 the chance to find the fun (yes, FUN!) in math! This year the Explora Science Center, the Parents@Albuquerque Institute for Math and Science Parent Teacher Association, and the University of New Mexico Graduate and Professional Student Association will be co-sponsoring what looks like it will be the the biggest JRMF ever held in New Mexico. Hosted for the first time ever in the University of New Mexico Student Union Building, this is a JRMF that shouldn’t be missed.
April 13 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-6| Free – $10
A Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival offers students advanced and thought-provoking mathematics in a social and cooperative atmosphere. Students choose among several tables offering problem sets, games, or puzzles with mathematical themes. They work as long as they wish, while a facilitator provides support and encouragement. Motivation comes from the social interaction, rather than from any prize, grade, medal, or ranking. Festivals are run locally and supported by a national network. They can address any level of student, from those struggling with mathematics to those soaring in achievement.
