Special Screening: Navajo Math Circles

You're invited to a special screening of Navajo Math Circles, a film by George Csicsery on Friday, Sept 8, 2017 at 3 pm in SCI 142. Prof. Tatiana Shubin received the MAA's Mary P. Dociani Award which recognizes a mathematician making a distinguished contribution to the mathematical education of K-16 students. Much of Tatiana's most important work in mathematical education is centered around Math Circles, which are a way for mathematicians and mathematical scientists to share their love of math with K-12 students and teachers through informal group sessions of problem-solving and interactive exploration. In Fall 2012, Prof. Shubin co-founded 5 math circles to serve the Navajo community. A conversation with Prof. Shubin and Director Csicsery will follow a screening of the movie Navajo Math Circles which follows Navajo students and mathematicians who put the students in charge of exploring math to their own joy and satisfaction. 

Prof. Shubin is also co-organizer of the San Jose Math Circle and the Bay Area Math Adventures. The San Jose Math Circle serves middle school and high school students. Bay Area Math Adventures is a series of talks for middle school and high school students as well as the general public.
