Description

There is so much fun and interesting mathematics that high school students are prepared for that teachers never see in college. Mathematics teachers often pick this mathematics up over a long career. I'd like to give younger teachers a head start on this process by introducing participants to some of my favorite mathematics. Topics include triangular numbers, mathematical games, Hambergian division, and other wacky and wonderful stuff. Targeted to educators in their first 4-5 years of teaching.
