Cryptography has been used since ancient times to keep secrets. In this circle we be exploring secrets of cryptogrphy, both ancient and modern, find a way to break some codes, and perhaps create some unbreakable codes while we're at it.
Mathematics is hidden all around us, in everything we see, do, and decide. In this circle we will look at the practical application of mathematics that is all around us, which will give us a new way of viewing everything from buildings and trees, to our decisions and actions. Join in the exploration, and be ready to see the world in a new way!
Magic squares have dazzled people around the world for millennia. They represent perfection, and some cultures believe their mysteries were used by a deity to communicate with the people. We will investigate these mathematical curiosities, along with their combinatoric and geometric properties. And we will create our own magic square puzzles that hold the beauty of perfection!
The Mathemagical Forest is in trouble, and we are asked to save it! Through solving mathematical puzzles involving geometry, combinatorics and algebra, we can keep the mathematics alive and well in the forest, and save it from disappearing. Come join our adventures to restore the forest!
Pick a number, any number. I bet I can guess what it is! Let's go out to eat; do you think I can predict what you're going to order? And what do these two things have to do with the leaf patterns of plants? We will discover these things together in this math circle, Hidden Treasures.
Finding big number primes or deciding if we can factorize a huge one are complex tasks. In this circle, we will not only discover amazing properties regarding natural numbers, but also we will implement algorithms in Python to understand better the beautiful world of number theory. No knowledge of Python is required to start the circle, and it is not necessary to install any software (Using a google account, we have access to Google Colab).
There is more to the simple square than meets the eye. What can we learn about these beautiful shapes when we break free from the grid and give them the attention they deserve? Is it possible that this little quadrilateral could challenge everything we think we know about math?
In the land of dragons, the earth is divided into squares parcels of different sizes. There is a secret configuration of square which allows magic to flow through the world. Can we find it?
Allow a pirate, sea horse, and krachen to take you on a mathematical exploration of the nautical world via numbers and algebra.
