Rec Math S-L Course

In the Spring 2022, we will be piloting a Recreational Mathematics and Outreach service-learning course to be piloted in the Spring 2022.

This course is a hands-on approach to the study of mathematics and the practice of its communication and informal education. In this course, students will study mathematics through problems in recreational topics such as art, games, and puzzles. Course participants will design an engaging activity within those topics to present at a Columbus City Schools classroom with the goal of helping students realize how rich mathematics are and to overcome their anxiety with the subject.

  • Explore ways to turn them into hands-on experiences
  • Engage with elementary school audiences
