“A Potpourri of Puzzles!”
Friday, November 19 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Online and in person!
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.
You can join Family Fridays in person at the Museum (11 East 26th Street) — or online by participating in a livestream broadcast of the event.
Family Fridays is designed to bring families together to enjoy a diverse array of engaging mathematical activities, promoting interest and enthusiasm among kids and adults alike. The activities are designed so that all attendees, regardless of age, can participate on an equal footing. Thanks to the generous support of Two Sigma, this program is free to attendees.
Here’s what participants have to say:
“I was very impressed at how such a program could be presented that truly worked for all ages! I, at 68, was as fascinated as the kids. It was fun watching them grabbing what they could and happily keeping up with the activities.”
“Super excellent for all ages — one of best programs ever (not just Family Fridays — all programs everywhere!)”
“Wow! It’s the first time we are attending Family Friday series. We are so impressed! You guys are amazing! Thank you!”
