Math On-A-Stick is a fun family math event at the Minnesota State Fair. Children aged 2+ and their families and friends enjoy tiling, counting, spinning, creating, and most of all playing with numbers, patterns, and shapes.
Natural Math is an international community that creates rich, playful, and meaningful mathematical experiences for everybody from toddlers to grown-ups. Everything starts with math stories and math adventures! Snowflakes are examples of fractals and an invitation to explore symmetry. Sliced fruit illustrates integrals and derivatives. Floor tiles form beautiful tessellations. Natural Math helps to organize math circles, publishes books, offers online courses, and addresses parents’ questions in an online forum.
Make patterns, tile with turtles, count, spiral and play your way to mathy delight! The fun is designed for preschool and primary-aged children, yet offers plenty to engage the minds of tweens, teens, and adults. Can you program algorithms without a computer? Can you learn calculus before you learn to tie your shoes? Where is algebraic geometry in paper snowflakes? Join the volunteers at Natural Math and Math-On-A-Stick to play with accessible, joyful, beautiful activities! Kind math adventures await.
