Mathy Stuff – Po-Shen Loh, Renowned Mathematician at HS May 14

Folks, there are summer rock concert tours, and then there are “North American Summer Math Tours” and while the music from one will bring back your youth (Def Leppard, see you at Fenway), the other might change your future. On May 14, world-renowned mathematician Po-Shen Loh is coming to our concert hall (aka high school auditorium) to speak about math, innovation, and education.

While the event is directed to families of middle and high schoolers (parents are encouraged to attend), the event is open to all so if you feel mathy, or should feel mathy (ahem), or have recently been schooled that $85,000 > $2,000 on a public facebook forum (ahem again), please come out on Saturday, May 14 from 1-2:30 pm. You can fill out the pre-test on the high school page. No, there is not an admittance test; I am just messing with you.  You should however fill in the registration link here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/330722238117

  • There are research shows that early education of music and math are positively correlated with each other. BTW, I saved my name “for the next time I comment.” But it seems every time I have to enter my info again 🙂
