A Taste of Pi
- Date: 03/08/2008
We are happy to continue our series “A Taste of Pi”. The ninth part of this successful series of talks and activities for high school students will be offered this fall by the SFU Department of Mathematics,and IRMACS – Interdisciplinary Research in the Mathematics and Computational Science with support by the SFU Faculty of Science and PIMS - the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences.
The program consists of monthly Saturday morning meetings at SFU, from 9:00 to 12:30, during which students will have an opportunity to hear talks given by distinguished faculty members about their research, about new and exciting developments in the mathematical sciences, and about contemporary applications of mathematics. The talks will be followed by problem sessions, where students will be working on exciting problems and activities related to the concepts discussed in the talks. The session will end with a talk with the topic from another scientific discipline.
“A Taste of Pi” is designed to provide students in grades 10 and 11, who have demonstrated a talent and a strong interest for mathematics, with enrichment activities in a fun and rewarding environment.
Participation in the program is by invitation only.
