It has been a long time since I posted any updates, and I want to thank all the guests who have been reading my webpage during that time.
Here are several events that took place recently:
Mathematics Kangaroo Contest took place on March 23rd across Canada. All three University of Toronto Campuses were involved. The students and the staff had a great time! Visit https://kangaroo.math.ca/ to register for the 2015 Math Kangaroo Contest!
Math In Motion…Girls In Gear (April 5th). It was a great honor for me to be one of the guest speakers and to teach grade 9 students about ancient calculation aid – abacus. Then they even made their own abaci and took their creations home!
Girls also braved the Design Challenge task that required them to build a container for an egg that needed to be thrown off the third floor! Guess what – most eggs survived this adventure without a slightest crack!
Mathematics Mentorship – Poster Presentation Event. 25 high school students were paired up with UofT Math department graduate students and professors for a semester-long mentored studies. The students demonstrated their newly acquired knowledge during the end-of-the-semester poster presentation session.
