Providing Madison children with a friendly environment that fosters learning beautiful mathematical theories beyond the regular school curriculum and developing critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Last week, we had a wonderful talk about Pick's theorem by Connor Simpson. For more info, or just to read a bit about Pick's theorem and how it appears in various areas of math, check out this article from the Institute of Mathematics & its Applications.

We were so happy to see so many of you who came.

We look forward to seeing you all again on March 1st for a talk by Colin Crowley.

Shout out to Liam for their solution to our egg-dropping stumper!

1) Find a way to put 7 points on a piece of paper and draw 6 straight lines so that each line goes through 3 of your points.

For example, the picture (either left or above this text depending on your computer/phone) is a way to put 7 points and 4 lines so that each line goes through 3 of the points.

2) Find a way to put 10 points on a piece of paper and draw 5 straight lines so that each line goes through 4 of your points.
