Do we really need to learn about mathematics in our modern world? We all carry calculators around in our pockets and so much of what we’re taught in school mathematics can seem irrelevant to our lives. However, the reason we learn mathematics is not just to solve problems. It’s to unlock a world hiding in plain sight, to enable us to appreciate its patterns and navigate its secrets. In this session we’ll explore some of those secrets and see how mathematics helps us to wonder at the world we live in.

This free live event geared at ages 11+ is presented by the National Math Festival and the Mathical Book Prize.

Registrants will receive a Zoom link and instructions to join. Questions? Contact mathfestival@msri.org.
