Registration is now open for the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival on Friday, May 17, 2019!

This event is for current middle school students, and will be held at SFA in the Cole STEM Building from 9:00am until 2:00 pm. The cost is $10 per student. Students and teachers attending are asked to bring their own lunch, water and lemonade will be provided.

Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals inspire students to think critically, and to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through collaborative, creative problem-solving. Students will engage with mathematical puzzles and problems and are free to choose problems that interest them. The speaker this year is Dr. Brittney Falahola, SFA Assistant Professor of Mathematics.

Space is limited to 200 students. Please email Adrienne Aul, aaul@sfasu.edu, with your request for the number of students you would like to bring.

Schools will be invoiced based on the number of students attending. In your email, include a contact person for the event and contact information for the invoice. If students are paying individually, we ask that the schools collect the money and send one check to cover the cost of all students attending from that school. There is no charge for teachers to attend. We ask schools provide one teacher per every 10 students. After students register they must complete the required waiver. Once the school has all student waivers, please scan them as one document and email them to aaul@sfasu.edu.

Students will register individually online through the following link:  STUDENT REGISTRATION – JULIA ROBINSON MATHEMATICS FESTIVAL

Teachers will register individual online through the following link: TEACHER REGISTRATION – JULIA ROBINSON MATHEMATICS FESTIVAL

Required student waiver: STEM Center STUDENT WAIVER

We look forward to having you and your students here for the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival. For further information or questions, please email Adrienne Aul, aaul@sfasu.edu .

About JRMF

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.
