Conversations in Mathematics
Student-led teaching on various math topics.
Introducing kids to the joy of math early on.
1-hour classes take place through video calls and screen sharing.
Interested students ages 5 through 13 are welcome.
Classes may be private or group, all participating remotely.
Originally run as in-person math circle style lessons (described here), the recent necessity to remain isolated due to coronavirus has led to Conversations in Mathematics as an online system.
Furthermore, with motivated students all over the world now home from school, the need for this resource has jumped. Thus, here we are.
A free 30 minute trial class is available. Please fill out the form below if you are interested.
