The National Math Festival brings together some of the most fascinating mathematicians of our time to inspire and challenge participants to see math in new and exciting ways. Lectures, hands-on demonstrations, art, films, performances, puzzles, games, children's book readings, and more will show everyone from toddlers to teens and adults the unexpected sides of mathematics. The National Math Festival is free and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 22, 2017, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

mathstatmonth/math-stat-month-web.pdf Then join the fun on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #mathaware: https://twitter.com/hashtag/MathAware?src=hash Now in its 31st year, Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month is sponsored annually by the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics (JPBM), a collaborative effort of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), the American Statistical Association (ASA), the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). To simplify coordination efforts, this celebration of mathematics will no longer have an annual theme -- but past years offer a wellspring of inspiration: http://www.mathstatmonth.org/mathstatmonth/themeposters -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum at NCTM http://mathforum.org/ Online PD http://mathforum.org/pd/ Online Workshops http://mathforum.org/workshops/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pows/ Powerful Problem Solving http://mathforum.org/pps/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/kb/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Ask Dr. Math Books http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html Facebook https://www.facebook.com/themathforumatnctm/ Blogs http://mathforum.org/blogs/pows/ Twitter Feed http://mathforum.org/pd/twitter.html SEND COMMENTS TO: http://mathforum.org/electronic.newsletter/mfin.faq.html#feedback _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ An archive of all the Math Forum newsletters and directions for subscribing can be found at http://mathforum.org/electronic.newsletter/
