Inspired By Math

The Inspired by Math program is funded by Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grant (provided by the Mary P. Dolciani Halloran Foundation via the Mathematical Association of America), Novice Math Circle Grant (via the National Association of Math Circles, a program of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute), Emporia State University, and Emporia Middle School.

Inspired By Math is a new math enrichment STEM outreach program for 6th-8th grade students attending Emporia Middle School. The program consists of two components for students to participate in during the year.

A four-day summer camp is held on the ESU campus during the summer. While there, students will learn about Geometry, Number Sense, Probability and Statistics, and Logic and Reasoning. They will also tour the ESU campus, learn how to crack codes using cryptography and watch a movie titled “A Brilliant Young Mind.” The summer camp allows students to see what the weekly after-school program will look like.

Then, during the school year, students can choose to participate in the once-a-week, after-school program. During this time students take part in activities such as building dome structures and bridges to inspire students’ interests in geometry and playing casino games to teach probability. Invited talks about math topics will also be a part of the program from time to time. In addition, students will work together on a project of their own choosing throughout the year. In the spring, a math bee will be held where students can compete and showcase their projects. The year ends with a field trip.
