Portola Valley School District is excited to host its first Julia Robinson Math Festival on May 9th from 6-7:30 PM at the Corte Madera School campus. This event is open to any student in K-8th grade and family members. We are looking forward to exploring a variety of math topics and games facilitated by PVSD teachers and JRMF volunteers. This event is free to all PVSD students and families and local community families are welcome to join us for a small fee. There will be a food truck set-up at 5:00 pm so come and eat prior to the festival.

Thank you to the Portola Valley Foundation for putting on this event.

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.
