Math professor seeks to inspire with local tour stops this weekend

Dr. Po-Shen Loh, a professor of math at Carnegie Mellon University and national coach of the USA International Math Olympiad team, will make three stops in metro Atlanta this weekend to talk about mathematics, creativity and innovation.

The free events are part of Loh’s summer-long tour and are for students in grades 5 through 11. Loh will speak this Friday in Marietta, and Saturday in Alpharetta and Brookhaven. All three events will be held in outdoor pavillions at public parks.

In addition to being a professor, Loh operates a for-profit online math enrichment program. The promoter who reached out to me about the tour events assures me the presentations are not merely promotions for the classes, although she says they will be “briefly mentioned.”
