More than 170 exhibits at the Mathematikum open a new door to mathematics. Visitors of all ages and educational backgrounds experiment: they solve puzzles, build bridges, stand in a giant soap bubble, see themselves infinite times in a mirror and much more.
Math Festivals are special events that demonstrate to students the importance of Mathematics, a subject EVERYONE can enjoy, marvel at, and have success. Students working with a partner choose a station to visit and work at that activity as long as they wish, working harder and harder problems. When they are ready, they move to another station and do a completely different activity. Each station has challenging tasks of different levels of difficulty, some very easy for young primary students, and some hard enough to challenge adults!
The students walk away from their time at the Math Festival thinking that math is fun, interesting, AND that they CAN DO IT.
Since “n is a Number,” a documentary chronicling the life and work of renowned mathematician Pal Erdös, one key focus of Zala films has revolved around uncovering and disseminating the human stories interwoven in the world of mathematics.

Although the National Association of Math Circles is a project of MSRI, separately listed in this archive, it is beyond the scope of this archive to list each individual active math circle. (You can access a directory of individual circles via the more information link.) Rather, this entry serves as a placeholder for the very important collection of math circles which bring the joy of mathematical discovery to thousands of people. In the words of NAMC, “Math Circles … bring … students together with mathematically sophisticated leaders in an informal setting … to work on interesting problems or topics in mathematics.”
The world is full of mathematics – the physical world and the world of our imagination. But in school children rarely learn about the directions that learning math can lead them in. The Arizona Math Road Show is about to show them, via a mobile Math outreach program.
