Proof School students hosted over a hundred kids and parents from the community for our first annual math festival, full of hands-on math games, puzzles, building challenges, and magic tricks.
We're lucky that there's a growing array of resources for kids who love math--but which are the best fit for your child? For one afternoon, we gathered together a panel of leading educators, representatives from 20+ organizations serving kids who love math, and more, to help parents and students better understand the landscape of resources.
Ravi Vakil is a math professor at Stanford University who has received numerous awards as a teacher, researcher, and author. In this public talk, Prof. Vakil shared a line of inquiry that began with childhood doodles yet leads to important notions in geometry, topology, physics, and elsewhere.
Dr. Benjamin is a professor of mathematics and a magician. In this talk, Dr. Benjamin provided a dazzling display of mathemagical entertainment as he fooled around with Fibonacci numbers, investigated infinity, marveled over mathematical magic tricks, and performed amazing feats of rapid mental calculation.
Po-Shen Loh is a math professor at Carnegie Mellon, lead coach of the USA International Math Olympiad team, and co-founder of Expii. In this public talk, he explored ways in which huge numbers arise naturally from simple-looking situations.
In this series of events, we gathered for an introduction to Proof School, with math and maker activities, Q+A, interviews, and Math Ollies.
Dr. Benjamin is a professor of mathematics and a magician, and combined his two loves to create a dynamic presentation called “Mathemagics.” He has presented this talk for thousands of groups throughout the world, and is a member of Proof School’s Advisory Board.
In this series of events, we gathered for an introduction to Proof School, with teaching demos by our academic deans and a Q+A.
Five of the Proof School team—Sam Vandervelde, Zachary Sifuentes, Kathy Lin, Ian Brown, and Paul Zeitz—chatted about Proof School in an open webinar run through the Math Future series at NaturalMath.com.
In a series of events, we introduced our Dean of Mathematical Sciences, Sam Vandervelde.
