Explorations in Geometry

For 3rd through 6th graders,
six weeks only!

Sundays at 2:45 pm
March 1 through April 5

Does your child have a keen interest in geometric exploration?  Gifted and motivated students in 3rd through 6th grade are invited to participate in an exclusive, hands-on exploration of geometric ideas with visiting mathematician Paul Zeitz.  Explore three-dimensional geometry with Zometools and two-dimensional geometry through classic compass-and-straightedge constructions.  This will be a fun and challenging experience, aimed specifically at bright students who are not being challenged in their everyday school experience.  Space is extremely limited; apply soon!

Policies

MoMath will make every effort to run classes as scheduled, but occasionally severe inclement weather or other unusual circumstances beyond MoMath's control may require that a class be cancelled.  If such a cancellation occurs, MoMath may, at its sole discretion, offer make-up sessions.

Note that this program will run only if a minimum number of participants register before the start date.  In the rare event that this program is cancelled, registrants will be notified and provided with a full refund.

Adult chaperones may wait in the lobby or in Additions, the shop at MoMath.

All participants in Explorations in Geometry are expected to exhibit good behavior to ensure a positive experience for everyone.  At its sole discretion, MoMath may remove a student from Explorations in Geometry for behavioral reasons.  If a student is removed for behavioral reasons, for either the day or the remainder of the program, no refund will be issued.
