Math Explorers' Club

You are here

With support from the National Science Foundation, graduate students have developed a collection of more than 40 mathematics modules that cover a wide variety of topics accessible to middle- and high-school students. We implement one or two of these modules on the Cornell campus each semester in what we call the “Math Explorer’s Club. (MEC)”

Goal

Introduce new mathematical concepts and problem solving strategies to grades 8-12 students who will, in turn, communicate their new knowledge in public forums (i.e., through posters and/or presentations).

What to Expect

Interactive lessons in a cooperative and supportive learning environment = lots of fun!
