Cristina Gomez, Associate Professor of Math and Education, gave a presentation at the Fall Conference of the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State on Saturday, November 16, in Rochester, NY. The 60-minute presentation was titled "Organizing a Math Fair".
The abstract of the talk:
"Fairs are common activities in many schools. Organizing a math fair for your school, could be an engaging activity for your class. Students could be involved in selecting appropriate games, getting materials ready, preparing for playing the games, setting up the place, and running the activities. In this session, I will share the strategies I use with my classes and with an elementary classroom, to set up math fairs for the community and for the school. We will explore some of the games and activities that are appropriate for these events."
