Astounding Approximations spaces available

(10-29-2015)

There is still time to register for the free Adams State University Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Saturday, "Astounding Approximations," by Dr. Meredith Anderson, assistant professor of mathematics.

The Astonishing Approximations STEM Saturday session will be a hands-on discussion of huge numbers and infinity. Students will do fun activities where they will figure out how to win a guessing contest, mathematical tricks to try to get more allowance money from parents, and ways to gain perspective as to how large is the universe.

The workshop is scheduled from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, Nov. 7, and is for students in grades 6 through 8.

Registration is required. Once registered, participants will receive the location of session and any other pertinent information. Only parent/guardian authorized registrations will be accepted. No cost to participants.

For more information or a reservation form, contact Simona Guillen, Title V STEM Project Specialist, at 719-587-7318 or sguillen@adams.edu.
