Topic to be determined.
Facilitator: Matthias Beck studied mathematics and math education in Germany and the US, and is now a professor at San Francisco State University. His research is in discrete & computational geometry, and numerous of his publications involved collaborative research with undergraduate and graduate students. Matt was one of the co-directors of the San Francisco Math Circle for about 10 years, as well as the PI of an NSF GK-12 project at San Francisco State, which supported graduate students and K-12 teachers in their education, research and outreach activities.
Topic: Parking Functions form a fun and easy-to-explain concept in combinatorics with wide-ranging connections, e.g., to computer science. We will work out an approach to count parking functions, and this count in itself connects to other interesting combinatorial objects.
If you plan to attend, RSVP [here – Link soon!].
Join us as we explore how simple addition can lead to a dazzling variety of sophisticated patterns.
Topic: 2 = 1 + 1 and other compositions
Speaker: Joshua Zucker has been leading math circles since 1998 and is part of the team that began the math teachers’ circle program in 2006. In recent years he has run the Big Sur marathon and been a member of team USA at the world sudoku championships.
Food: Refreshments and snacks
Apply now for the BATMath Immersion Workshop, a free residential summer program for math teachers in the greater San Francisco Bay Area!
The workshop takes place July 8-12, 2019, at the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM) in San Jose. All workshop participants receive full funding for meals and lodging at a nearby hotel during the workshop.
Applicants are chosen based on their degree of interest in becoming engaged in a community of problem solvers and bringing the culture of problem solving to their classrooms. We encourage all interested teachers to apply, regardless of their mathematical background.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and will remain open until all places are filled, or until June 7, 2019.
