Summer Camp Activities During the summer of 2020, we ran a virtual math summer for middle and high school students. The camp content will remain available until next summer and it is free for anyone to try. You can access it by creating a free account on Canvas Network. You earn a badge for each activity you complete! The activity videos are also available on our YouTube channel.

Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival Remote Activities

The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival is actually a lot of festivals around the globe. The organization supports locally organized events that inspire K–12 students to think critically and to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through collaborative, creative problem-solving. Since right now these festivals cannot be hold in person, they are offering a webinar and a game, both appropriate for the whole family, each week.

Four Color Fest Activity Book, by Melinda Lanius

Check out this activity book which our friends from the University of Illinois Geometry Lab put together a few years ago in celebration of the 40 year anniversary of the proof of the four-color theorem (you can learn more about the theorem on the book). For the youngest ones in the family, this is a great coloring book. The activities included are great for older kids and adults a like.

This book was designed by Melinda Lanius, now a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Arizona.
