Julia Robinson Mathematics and Computing Festival
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Office of Educational Outreach (OEO), the Center for Education Innovation , the Charlotte Teachers Circle, and the Charlotte Mathematics Club proudly present the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Regional Julia Robinson Mathematics and Computing Festival (JRMCF), Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at UNC Charlotte.
The Julia Robinson Mathematics and Computing Festival was founded in spring 2007 to encourage middle school girls to investigate diverse areas of mathematics they would not ordinarily encounter in the classroom. Mathematicians ranging from college undergraduates to first-rate professionals host tables devoted to different activities; students work on the activities with each other and with the activity leader. Students spend perhaps 30 minutes on each of the 6 activities that they choose from the several dozen available.
There is a $5.00 pre-registration fee until Friday, March 7, 2018 for each participant and lunch will be provided for students only (advisors/parents may purchase lunch). On-site registration will be $20.00 per participants. After lunch, participants will enjoy a mathematical presentation by a national speaker to be announced.
