Diversity in Math Movie Series (ages 10+)

Join the Ohio State Department of Mathematics each month as they highlight films depicting the lives of prominent mathematicians from underrepresented groups and learn about their passions and struggles. 

In March, the featured film is Navajo Math Circles, which documents the meeting of two worlds: that of some of the country’s most accomplished mathematicians and math educators and the children and teachers in the Navajo educational system.
This event is open to anyone ages 10 and above.

Beyond the Classroom Monthly (grades 6-12)

March 20, 11 a.m. Learn more or register: go.osu.edu/shongo

The OSU Department of Mathematics, through its outreach branch Buckeye Aha! Math Moments (BAMM), hosts free monthly workshops for students in grades 6-12. Student attendees get to explore math through engaging activities in a nontraditional environment. 
In March, join BAMM to learn about Shongo networks. Kids in Congo play a game of drawing this traditional shapes in the sand without lifting the stick. The same designs often appear in woven handcrafts. In this workshop students will study which patterns can be successfully drawn for the game and which can't.
