Co-Facilitators: Elysée Wilson-Egolf completed her bachelor’s degree in math at UC Berkeley and now teaches geometry at Bentley Upper School in Lafayette. In addition to presenting with math circles around the Bay and teaching problem-solving/proofs at Berkeley Math Circle’s Math Taught the Right Way program, she directs the Bay Area Teachers and Mathematicians Network. Matyas Sustik received his masters in mathematics in Hungary and a PhD in computer science in Austin, TX. He works as a data science manager at WalmartLabs. He has been volunteering as a grader for the Bay Area Math Olympiad and as instructor for the Berkeley math summer camp and math circle.

Topic: 2D Geometry Problems Understood With 3D Thinking — Experience EBMTC’s first team-taught session by a high school math teacher and a(n applied) mathematician! In addition to clarifying some standard plane geometry theorems, our journey will lead to Brianchon’s theorem in this context. Participants will engage in an experiment, solve and create problems, and build 3D models.
