Topic: math and play with SOMA cubes

 
Join us for an evening of fun with the SOMA cube - a great puzzle for developing 3D intuition. We will enjoy some very nice math behind the SOMA cube that makes it easier to assemble the 7 pieces into a 3 X 3 X 3 cube!

What: Math Teachers’ Circle (MTC)

The sessions will sometimes be led by a math professor, sometimes by a grade student and sometimes we work through problems one of our group has proposed.  All teachers are welcome to attend.  These sessions are most applicable for math specialists and middle/high school math teachers. Teachers are encouraged to suggest session topics.  Teachers can earn PD units for attendance. 

When: The Circle has met since 2009.  This year we will meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except January). 

Where: TBA Participants will host sessions at their school site or other location.

Please, if you  have not signed up email and ask to be put on the mailing list.
