We will be introduced to modular math. We completed pages 1-6 of the handout.
|10/25/2020| [Show less]
We will be continuing the second half of the handout on modular math. We will also learn modular math applications, such as checksums.
|11/1/2020| [Show less]
We will finish up our review on modular math, learning how to subtract and divide in modular math as well as learning how to prove divisibility rules with modular math.

We will be exploring an ancient Egyptian technique of splitting fractions into their unit parts. We completed pages 1-16.
|11/15/2020| [Show less]
We will continue our exploration of Egyptian fractions (pages 17-24). Homework is pages 25-26.
|11/22/2020| [Show less]
To conclude our exploration of Egyptian Fraction Representation, we will complete the Egyptian Fractions part 1 handout and begin Egyptian Fractions part 2. Pages 6-8 EFR part 2 are assigned as homework.

We will look a method to prove mathematical hypotheses: proof by induction.
|12/13/2020| [Show less]
We will continue to explore proof by induction and introduce proof by contradiction. *Last class of fall quarter, Happy Holidays!

Suppose we break a stick into three pieces randomly. What are the chances the resulting pieces will form a triangle?
|1/17/2021| [Show less]
We will continue and complete our packet on breaking sticks. In which scenario are we most likely able to form a triangle from our broken sticks?

This week we will learn how to convert between fractions and decimals, while also exploring the properties of terminating and non-terminating decimals.
|1/31/2021| [Show less]
We will continue to explore terminating and non-terminating decimals. WHY do decimals have these properties? How can we write non-terminating decimals as fractions?
|2/7/2021| [Show less]
We will write and define sequences and numbers through explicit and recursive definitions. We will also explore arithmetic sequences and how we can generalize the sum of n-terms in the sequence.

|2/21/2021| [Show less]
We will continue our work on arithmetic sequences, then transition to learning about arithmetic series.
|2/28/2021| [Show less]
We will introduce geometric sequences and explore how using geometric series can help us convert non-terminating decimals to fractions.

Today, we introduce combinatorics: the mathematics of counting.
|3/14/2021| [Show less]
We will complete the combinatorics worksheet from last week. Furthermore, we will explore what happens if the order of the items in our list matters.

Can you move the earth with a lever? Today's math circle lesson will require creativity, physics, and a little intuition to balance levers.
|4/11/2021| [Show less]
We will refresh our minds on combinations and permutations from before spring break, and we will also begin to explore probability.
|4/18/2021| [Show less]
To test our knowledge of combinatorics that we learned over the past few weeks, we will go over 4 tough problems.
