Celebrating April as Mathematics Awareness Month

Attention Cornell Students: April is Mathematics Awareness Month (MAM)! To honor this annual celebration, Cornell’s Department of Mathematics will host arithmetic-inspired events and speakers from April 19 to 20th.

One highlight is the MAM Public Lecture featuring Tim Chartier from Davidson College and the Museum of Mathematics. Scheduled for Friday, April 19th, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., this event promises an enlightening talk by Chartier, renowned for his expertise in sports analytics, bracketology, and innovative mathematics performances.

The celebration continues on Saturday, April 20th, with an exceptional "Mime-matics" Performance. Starting at 10:00 a.m., Professor Tim Chartier and his wife, Tanya, will blend mathematics and miming in a unique performance. Additionally, The Cherry Arts will present workshops suitable for both adults and families.

“I'm looking forward to a dynamic lecture on data analytics and its role in sports, accessible to all Cornell students,” said Tara Holm, professor and chair of mathematics. The Chartiers will “bring great skill and an interesting perspective embodying abstract mathematical ideas through physical theatre.”

Whether you're a mathematics enthusiast or a curious mind, mark your calendars and join the festivities. Stay tuned for more updates and detailed information as we appreciate the power of math together at Cornell!
