Senior Sessions:
"Roping Around the World"

Friday, February 4
2:00 pm to 2:45 pm ET (New York)

Come test your intuition with a mathematical problem about a rope tied around the Earth.  Explore the counterintuitive solution with an engaging, hands-on activity.  How can we use C=2*pi*r to understand this intriguing problem?  Learn how simple models can help us better understand concepts that defy logic.

Materials needed: pencil, paper, ruler with inch measurements, tape, 3 paper clips, scissors, and sheet of 8-½ x 11 paper cut lengthwise into ½-inch strips.

This is a live-streamed event.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at
