High School Math Day 2014
Mathematical Exploration Day
Tuesday, April 1, 2014
Each Spring, students come to Ithaca College from several area high schools came to experience a day of mathematical fun, exploration, and discovery. Dozens of sophomores and juniors arrive early on campus for a breakfast and a welcome from the Department of Mathematics. Students take part in a team mathematical competition. During this competition, the high school teachers enjoy a professional development presentation. Following the competition, students and teachers explore mathematical ideas in a variety of areas. Lunch follows with the announcement of the competition winners. It is a great event that the IC Math Department looks forward to every year.
