Members of the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences‘ Department of Mathematical Sciences will host activities for attendees to do which show why we love mathematics and have made careers of it. Attendees will also have the opportunity to play math games, look at mathematical art, and try solving math problems on their own.
Celebration of Mind will take place at the University of Arkansas Fayetteville campus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 30 in the fourth floor of Champions Hall (CHPN).
If you are a teacher planning on bringing a class, please let us know so we may make any special arrangements necessary (such as bus parking). Parking is available in Harmon Parking Garage immediately south of Champions Hall.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences hopes to see you there!

About Celebration of Mind
The Celebration of Mind is a worldwide, annual tribute to Martin Gardner, a mathmagician of sorts who engaged generations of people with mathematics and magic, puzzles, games and ideas. It was mathematics pursued, not for importance or power, but simply for beauty and fun. His long-running column in Scientific American broke stories on advances from the highest reaches of mathematics.
