Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival
November 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The mission of Julia Robinson Math Fest is to inspire students to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through games, and activities that encourage collaborative, creative and interactive problem-solving.
The festival will bring together students from local middle schools, high schools, and colleges to engage in various thought-provoking activities in a social and cooperative atmosphere. Participants can choose from several tables of math-themed games, puzzles, and activities where a facilitator (Faculty and students from UW Tacoma, Tacoma CC, Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma Public Schools, Engineers, etc ) will be happy to work with them for as long as they wish while providing support and encouragement. These social interactions have shown to be a critical component in motivating students.
