Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival
The UF Department of Mathematics in conjunction with the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival hosted a day of mathematical fun on September 14, 2019 at the Harn Museum of Art. A Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival provides exciting and engaging activities that inspire K–12 students to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through collaborative, creative problem-solving. An estimated 500 people attended and we thank all the faculty, grad students, and undergrad majors who facilitated more than 20 activities and made the event such a big success
