"A Potpourri of Puzzles!"
Friday, November 19 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Join us for an evening of fun and exploration as we tackle a variety of mathematical puzzles for beginners under the expert guidance of Dr. Sian Zelbo, mathematics educator. Dr. Zelbo has spent the last 15 years writing puzzles while also exploring recreational mathematics as an academic research interest. Do you prefer arithmetic puzzles, logic puzzles, or visual puzzles? Not sure? No problem! We'll explore a wide variety of simple (and not so simple) mathematical puzzles. As we work though each one, not only will we explore useful strategies for solving puzzles, we will also learn just what it is that makes a good puzzle.
Dr. Zelbo's book Camp Logic, as well as her other educational materials, have been used in classrooms and recreational settings all over the world. Camp Logic is available for purchase from Additions, the shop at MoMath.
This is an in-person event at the National Museum of Mathematics at 11 East 26th Street in NYC. Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes before the event to complete registration.
Note that masks are required to be worn at all times inside the Museum, and all visitors must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to be admitted to the Museum (photocopies of vaccination cards will not be accepted).
