The UIC chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) will hold its fourth Sonia Kovalevsky Math Day for high school girls (8th - 12th grade). The AWM provides fun activities, lunches, shirts, and mathematical prizes for the girls!
These days are part of series of the Association of Women in Mathematics (AWM). For more than twenty years Sonia Kovalevsky Days have been organized and sponsored by AWM and held at colleges and universities throughout the country. Sonia Kovalevsky Days (SK Days) consist of a program of workshops, talks, and problem-solving competitions for female high school and middle school students and their teachers, both women and men. Here is the PDF flyer of the event
The purpose of the day is to encourage young women to study mathematics, and we will explore the mathematics of geometry.
If you have any questions, please contact the organizers:
Prof. Laura Schaposnik (Mathematics, UIC)
Prof. James Unwin (Physics, UIC)
