the MoMath book club for tweens and teens
MoMath brings its popular Volumes book club to a younger audience. Like to read? Like math or wish you did? Join us online for Tween Primes, the MoMath book club for tweens and teens (ages 10–17). Friends and good math reads: what better way to spend an evening?
Tween Primes is a monthly event hosted by MoMath’s 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Dissemination of Mathematics, Tim Chartier.
A discussion of:
The Magic and Joy of Exploding Dots
by Kiran Ananthpur Bacche
(with contributions from James Tanton and James Propp)
Hosted by Tim Chartier with special guest James Tanton
Sunday, June 4 at 4:00 pm ET
Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and special guest James Tanton for an engaging discussion of The Magic and Joy of Exploding Dots by Kiran Ananthpur Bacche (with contributions from James Tanton and James Propp). In October 2017, over one million students and teachers from 168 countries and territories were transfixed by a universal story that together, they explored. What kind of a story is this that has the power to engage students all over the world, transcending language, borders, and technology? Why, it’s a story of the deeply human endeavor of mathematics!
All are welcome to attend the book club discussion. For the fullest experience, participants are encouraged to read the book in advance of the event.
