Math Beyond the Horizon
The Vermont State Mathematics Coalition offers a bi-weekly series of online interactive explorations of math, science, and technology topics beyond the traditional K-12 math curriculum. This series is oriented toward strong high school math students interested in new topics, but is open to anyone. Registration is free, but required for each session.
If you have suggestions for topics you'd like us to cover, or potential presenters, let us know.
No future sessions currently scheduled.
