2018-19 August Immersion
Our summer immersion will take place Thursday, August 16, 8:00am-5:00pm at Wayne RESA (Annex Building).
2018-19 School-year Program
Each month there is both a Tuesday Circle and a Saturday Circle Participants elect to primarily attend one or the other. During the school year the Wayne County Math Circle will meet in: September, October, November, January, February, March, April, & May.
To sign up for both the immersion and monthly school-year meetings, use the online application.
These sessions are lead by mathematicians and consist of collaborative work on open-ended, exploratory math problems and using those experiences to think about problem-solving in the classroom.

Title: Taxi Cab Geometry - How I Learned to Stop Worrying about the DIAG
Title: Last Man Standing
Abstract: This week, we'll explore a couple of classic math puzzles. If all goes well, we'll also learn about an obscure connection between color televisions and fake Indian folklore.
Title: Dynamical Systems, Orbits, and Fractals
Abstract: We will learn more about dynamical systems in two separate contexts. In the first one, we will play a candy sharing game and investigate different orbits. In the second part, we will look at sandpiles and talk about self-similar sets.
