BMTC article

The BMTC workshop has been previewed in Boise State’s Update newsletter. Here is a snippet from the article:

The ultimate goal of the Boise Math Teachers’ Circle is to promote teacher mentorship of students who could benefit from additional outlets for scientific curiosity and to encourage students to study science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) in college. Program activities will emphasize experimentation, discovery, data-collection, pattern recognition and explanation of observations.

BMC ends its first year on a pi note

The Boise Math Circle finished its last meeting of the 2014–2015 year last Saturday. The final session had little to do with the number pi (we made stellated platonic solids using Sonobe origami). But we did celebrate with pi cupcakes provided by a participant!

It has been a real pleasure hosting our meetings each week. We enjoyed learning together with all of the fabulous student participants! There were more than 20 of you, to which we add more than 15 adult mentors and participants.

Our discussion topics ranged from geometry to counting to games to infinity and beyond. We look forward to going deeper into these topics, as well as covering a broader range in the near future.

Watch this space for information about next year’s activities. In the mean time, tell your friends and tell your teachers about your experience with us. Thank you for a wonderful year!

This week’s topic is “The arithmetic of rigid motions”

Remember, the math circle meets in the BSU Math building, room 139. It takes place on Saturday from 10am to 12pm.
