Facilitator: Cornelia Van Cott is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of San Francisco. Outside of teaching math courses, Cornelia enjoys working with children at math circles and summer math camps. Cornelia also serves on the leadership team for the San Francisco Math Teachers’ Circle.

Topic: Dragons, Frogs, and Chocolate  We’ll look at imaginative math puzzles involving dragons, frogs, and — yes — chocolate, among other things. Each scenario will feel chaotic and impossible at first, but the chaos is only skin-deep. Surprising structure and clarity will be apparent once we discover a so-called invariant.

Cost: $0
