What’s the Big Idea? Game Show

A Game Show for Students and Mathematicians

Hosted by Cliff Freeman & Scarlitte Alameda

Join elementary, middle, and high school students for a whirlwind presentation of big ideas in math — presented by mathematicians — and judged by students! Students will assess the mathematicians’ explanations based on fun and clarity. Audience members participate in voting too, so come ready to listen and vote on your favorite big math ideas. This show is presented by the Young People’s Project, which uses a near-peer mentoring model to support student achievement in math.
