Senior Sessions

Twice a week (weekdays)
2:00 pm to 2:45 pm ET (New York)

Seniors citizens, exercise your mental muscles in 45-minute math sessions!  Join MoMath’s experienced presenters for intriguing classes on a variety of stimulating topics, including topology, puzzles, and cryptography.  Enjoy the discovery and challenges in these engaging, interactive activities with a collegial cohort of mature minds.  For senior citizens / mature adults.

Senior Sessions: “Making Math Solid: Tetrahedron”
Tuesday, March 2, 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm ET (New York)
Explore geometry and discover the beautiful structure of polyhedra!  Using modular origami techniques that involve folding multiple sheets of paper, each participant will create their very own tetrahedron.  Making Math Solid is a series that focuses on different polyhedra, highlighting their fascinating properties.  Materials needed: 6 to 10 sheets of origami paper or 6 to 10 paper squares (6 inches by 6 inches).

Senior Sessions: “Rep-tiles”
Friday, March 5, 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm ET (New York)
Come discover mathematical rep-tiles, geometric shapes that can tile into repetitions of themselves.  Learn about scaling, special tessellations, and mathematical proofs, while solving fun rep-tiles puzzles.  Materials needed: pencil, paper, printouts to be provided, and scissors (to cut out shapes prior to session).

Senior Sessions: “Vote Counts: Packing and Cracking”
Monday, March 8, 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm ET (New York)
Get a glimpse into the mathematics of elections by becoming a “legislator” for a day.  Explore how election districts are drawn, including “packing,” “cracking,” and the meaning of wasted votes, in order to analyze the fairness of representation in an election.  Materials needed: pencil, paper, colored pens (or markers), and printout to be provided.
