Monthly Math Hour at the University of Washington

Each spring, Seattle-area middle- and junior high-school students are invited to participate in the Monthly Math Hour on the University of Washington's campus. The Monthly Math Hour at the UW is a series of talks that will take place from 1-2pm on Sunday afternoons to introduce students to the beautiful and exciting world of mathematics. The lectures are given completely free of charge in Savery Hall room 260.

Well-behaved parents and teachers are also welcome to attend with the permission of their children. Siblings are free to join in, too.

There will be time for questions and further discussion after the talks.

Bouncing balls, fractions, and grids
We will discuss how studying the path of a ball bouncing around a square room connects to the study of fractions and the study of grid patterns. The talk will be elementary and showcase connections between geometry, algebra, and number theory. Lots of pictures and patterns!
