3rd Annual Math in the Picture Competition
November 21, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Come enjoy some refreshments and snacks while voting on math picture projects from SAU and high school students from around the area! The winner of the competition in the SAU category will get $50 for Amazon, and second place will get $25. Same for the high school category! In fact, here is how to submit your own project for consideration:
“Each fall, the department hosts an event where we display students’ poster projects. The poster includes: a picture they found, or a picture they took, or maybe a digital image they created. However they go about getting it, it is displayed fully on the poster. Then, they have some explanation/summary/formulas/etc. (wide variety of how vague or specific they want to get) describing how the picture relates to mathematics. The description can be as basic or as complex as the student would like. Similarly, the picture they choose can be of anything that interests them. In the past, many students have done this on PowerPoint, and then email it to Dr. Zach Hurdle, and he can get it printed off as a PDF and displayed in the room for them.”
