“Mathemati-Con” this Saturday = math fun for older kids

mathematiconThis Saturday, January 7, the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America present Mathemati-Con, a day of brain-stretching and entertaining math activities.

Mathemati-Con is best suited for middle-school and high-school students who have an affinity for math.

Highlights of the day include:

  • “Weird Ways to Multiply.” There are many unusual ways to multiply numbers. Can you figure out why these unconventional methods work?
  • “Mathemagician” Arthur Benjamin
  • Local and national math competitions (the competitors have already been selected, but you can watch them battle it out)

Mathemati-Con will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta and Marriott Marquis Atlanta hotels. Admission is free and no advance registration is necessary.
