Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals inspire students to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through activities that encourage collaborative, creative problem-solving.
The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival was first held in Columbus in 2014. The Festival has grown each year and has since been host to over 1,000 students! The Festival is organized by Math Plus Academy, and this year BAMM is partering up with the academy to make the Festival even greater.
How it works:
During the festival, students can join any table and work collaboratively with the volunteers and students there. Students are welcome to try out several tables until they find one that particularly interests them; once they do, they are encouraged to spend 30 – 45 minutes or more at that activity. Students are able to take home activities that they have spent time on. There is also be a mathematical games area.
We provide the mathematics and mathematicians to work with the students on the activities.
