### Spring Workshops - 3 Days

When: | Click on a course to see schedule details |

Presenting Polygons. In this three-day workshop, students will explore polygons. They will be able to identify them by the number of sides. They will distinguish between regular and irregular polygons. They will be able to find the sum of the measures of the angles of a polygon. They will be able to find the measure of each angle of any regular polygon. They will develop the formula for finding the area of a regular polygon. Students will need a scientific calculator and should have working knowledge of computers as there are several websites we will access.

MS Intro to Geometry: This three-day workshop is targeted at Middle School students who a have basic understanding of geometric shapes (triangle, quadrilateral, rectangle, square, parallelogram, rhombus, kite, trapezoid/isosceles trapezoid, circle) and angles (right angle, straight angle, parallel lines, acute angle, obtuse angle, degree measure). We will discuss problems involving circle geometry, the Pythagorean Theorem, and its applications, including coordinate geometry and finding areas of shaded regions (e.g., bounded by two sides of a right triangle and a circle inscribed into it.) The problems will be on the National MathCounts level.

HS Contest Topics in Geometry: This three-day workshop targets students with a solid foundation in basic geometry. For example, a score of 95+ on Geometry Regents would qualify a student for this class. This 3-class workshop will cover some common ideas in Plane Geometry, problems involving areas, and 3D geometry. The level of the problems will be AMC 10 #15-#25.

### Spring Workshops - 2 Days

When: | Click on a course to see schedule details |

Recursive Sequences: Two-day workshop. A sequence is a list of things (usually numbers) that are in order. Many sequences have patterns that a recursive formula can describe. In Algebra class, we learned that general methods exist to find the explicit formula for arithmetic and geometric sequences, but what about other recursive sequences? In this workshop, we will explore methods of writing explicit formulas for some sequences that are neither arithmetic nor geometric. We will also examine Fibonacci-style sequences in the form x_(n+1)=a*x_(n)+b*x_(n-1) and find the explicit formula of the Fibonacci Sequence with elementary algebraic methods. At the end of the workshop, we'll look at how the Golden Ratio is related to the Fibonacci Sequence. This workshop is recommended for students familiar with arithmetic and geometric sequences and solving systems of linear equations.

### Spring Workshops - 1 Day

HIGH SCHOOL

**The Sum-Product Problem **

DESCRIPTION: The sum-product problem is a major open problem in mathematics. Several of the world's leading mathematicians have been struggling with this problem over the past decades, making slow progress. At the same time, hardly any mathematical background is required for understanding this problem, since it only deals with sums and products of numbers. We will discuss the sum-product problem and see one of the major breakthroughs that was made for it. We will also have a brief chat about math research projects for high-school students.

Adam Sheffer is a professor of mathematics at the CUNY Graduate Center and the Director of Computer Science at CUNY's Baruch College. He is also the director of two programs where promising college students from across the country pursue math research, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. This year, his book "Polynomial Methods and Incidence Theory" was published by Cambridge University Press.

This is targeted to HS students. Due to limited space available, parents and guests are not invited. Light snacks will be served from 12:00pm to 12:30pm.

**Intermediate Pythagorean**: This 3-session workshop is for those who are familiar with Pythagorean triples It will include an informal proof of the Pythagorean theorem, special triangles, finding the third side of any right triangle, determining whether or not a triangle is a right triangle, and application of the Special triangles to find the area of composite figures. It will include irrational numbers.

**Exploding Dots Workshop**:
Exploding Dots is a construct of organized play and exploration to develop a deep sense of numeracy. Join us as we explore how “Exploding Dots,” James Tanton’s web-based project, can be used to enhance students’ understanding of place value and how to apply ideas of place value to binary numbers. Students will explore some of the introductory activities together, then break into smaller groups to examine the more complex applications.

**Probability Workshop**: The most important questions of life are, for the most part, really only problems of probability" - French mathematician Pierre-Simon Laplace.
This probability workshop will cover topics such as Axioms of probability, conditional probability, and Bayes' Theorem, random variables, and expected values. We will examine not only the mathematics of probability theory but also its applications in problem-solving through examples.
All students with basic algebra skills are welcome. Understanding of basic counting principles is preferred, but not required.

**Do We Understand Infinity?**:
We will begin with a trip down a memory lane by recounting multiple proofs of the infinitude of primes, including two proofs by Euclid and a proof by Erdos. Then we will switch gears and talk about paradoxes involving infinities, which will lead us to discussions about differences between finite and infinite sets. For example, if one finite set is a strict subset of another finite set, then the latter is larger than the former. However, this statement no longer holds for infinite sets and we will show why this is so. We will then move on to discussions about well-known infinite sets, like integers, even numbers, rational numbers, and real numbers, and will discuss the sizes of infinite sets. We will prove a theorem for comparing infinite sets and we will also prove that there are "more" real numbers than integers. We will prove some abstract theorems about infinite sets and, if time permits, will discuss multidimensional infinite sets and more general notions of infinity. This class has no prerequisites beyond Algebra II, but it will tackle abstract concepts, which may prove challenging to younger students.

Jan Siwanowicz will teach "Bases in Mathematical Spaces", looking at how bases occur naturally in different mathematical contexts. Some knowledge of Linear Algebra would be beneficial.

Professor Pogudin from NYU will talk about approximating and representing real-world data with polynomials using, for example, interpolation at cleverly chosen nodes or splines. Students should have a working knowledge of Python.

Students will be required to take a placement test and to provide a reference from a teacher or NYMC instructor to complete registration. Students already taking other classes may take this class as well if they meet the admission standards.

College Bridge is a new course designed to challenge our most advanced students who plan to take advanced mathematics classes in college. It will provide preparation for the formal theorem/proof approach taken in college by examining underlying structures and developing proof-writing skills.

Misha will teach Complex Variables - we will begin by solving geometry problems using Complex Analysis and will proceed to some well-known theorems and their applications, culminating with the proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra. Dr. Angelika Manhart, an NYU Post-doc, will teach Mathematical Modeling - we will discuss how mathematical models can be used to describe phenomena in the real world and what their limitations are.

Students will be required to take a placement test at home which they can submit by email; they will also be required to provide a reference either from their High School teacher or their NYMC instructor to complete registration. Students already taking other classes may take this class as well if they meet the admission standards.

It's appropriate for students who have taken the USAMO, USAJMO, or equivalent, or students recommended by a NY Math Circle instructor. (If this applies to you, please contact us at info@nymathcircle.org for possible placement.) Lunch will be included in each session.

### Gems from Geometry

When: | Saturdays 10am - 4pm, May 2 and 9. Lunches will be provided. |

Where: | NYU Courant Institute, 251 Mercer St (map). Room 202. |

Instructor:
| Larry Zimmerman. |

A short but scenic voyage slightly outside of the usual realm of secondary school Plane Euclidean Geometry. Highlights include a wealth of sources and resources together with a complement of delightful problems, surprising results and a collection of very useful theorems. Some topics - Collinearity and Concurrency, Cyclic Polygons and Ptolemy’s Theorem, Special Points and Lines associated with Triangles, Circles, Surprising Consequences of the Pythagorean Theorem, and more.

This is a workshop primarily designed for teachers, but we welcome student participants with a strong interest in Geometry. **PREREQUISITE:** High School Geometry or Equivalent. Students currently enrolled in High School Geometry will be considered if recommended by their teacher.

The registration fee covers both sessions, including lunch and course materials.

The NYMC classes at Queens College are open to enthusiastic students in grades 5-8 with a strong interest in learning and doing mathematics above and beyond the regular curriculum. There will be an emphasis on creative problem solving and thorough explanations. In addition, students will be encouraged to communicate their ideas clearly.

Students should be well-versed in arithmetic, including order of operations, and operations with fractions, decimals, and percents. For grades 7-8, students should also have basic algebraic skills. Enthusiasm about math, and some success in the subject (for example, a 4 on the last New York State Math Exam) are expected. These courses are appropriate for both new and returning students (as they will each cover new material).

In the descriptions of our circles given below, we mention the grade levels of the student. As mathematical preparation in students varies, this is somewhat flexible. If in doubt about the right level, please ask, and we'll be happy to offer guidance on choosing the right level class.

### AMC-8 Contest Registration

When: | Tuesday, November 18, 9:15am - 11:30am |

The AMC 8 is a 25 question, 40 minute national contest taken by middle school students across the country. We are offering it for free, in coordination with the SPMPS (a program of Art of Problem Solving Foundation). If your school already offers AMC-8, you should take it at your school. Please check with your teacher before signing up. You can search for your school (select "AMC8" contest type).

The event will be held at Chelsea Studios, 151 W 26th St, between 6th and 7th Avenues, on the 6th Floor.

You will need to miss a morning of school. Please talk to your math teacher about this. Your school can contact us if they have any questions, and we can provide you with a letter to show that you were participating in the contest.

The Summer Program is open to all high school students with an interest in learning and doing mathematics above and beyond regular curriculum.

Students are expected to attend the entire 3-week program.

### Level A

This course is appropriate for younger high school students, who are comfortable with regular high school material, including at least Algebra 1. Here’s a sample of problems you may see in Level A: Level A Sample Problem Set.### Level B

Students are expected to have completed an equivalent of two years of high school, and have a solid understanding of algebra, geometry, and elementary number theory. Experience with problem solving, such as prior NYMC or math team participation, is preferred but not required. Here’s a sample of Level B problems: Level B Sample Problem Set.### Level C

Students are expected to have taken pre-calculus and to have deeper knowledge of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as experience with mathematical problem solving. Problems will require sustained effort, and writing proofs will play an even more important role than in the other levels. Students are expected to be able to solve the first few questions on the AIME contest (see 2009 AIME for an example).

If a student is solidly a year ahead of his grade in math, or has completed a year of NYMC classes, you can add a grade when choosing the appropriate class. Keep in mind that all NYMC classes are challenging and have little overlap with school material. If in doubt about the right level, please ask, and we'll be happy to offer guidance on choosing the right level class.

The Summer Program is open to all high school students with an interest in learning and doing mathematics above and beyond regular curriculum.

This course is appropriate for students wishing to acquire deeper insight into mathematics, to develop their reasoning and analytical skills, to practice for a math team, or simply to have fun learning and doing wonderful mathematics.

### Level A

This course is appropriate for younger high school students, who are comfortable with regular high school material, including at least Algebra 1.### Level B

Students are expected to have completed an equivalent of two years of high school, and have a solid understanding of algebra, geometry, and elementary number theory. Experience with problem solving, such as prior NYMC or math team participation, is desirable but not required.### Level C

Students are expected to have taken pre-calculus and to have deeper knowledge of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as experience with mathematical problem solving. Problems will require sustained effort, and writing proofs will play an even more important role than in the other levels. Students are expected to be able to solve the first few questions on the AIME contest (see 2009 AIME for an example).### Middle School Circle at NYU

In the descriptions of levels below, we mention the current grade level of the student. What's important, however, is the level of mathematical preparation. If a student is solidly a year ahead of his grade in math, or has completed a year of NYMC classes, you can add a grade when choosing the appropriate class. Keep in mind that all NYMC classes are challenging and have little overlap with school material. If in doubt about the right level, please ask, and we'll be happy to offer guidance on choosing the right level class.

In response to students’ requests, NYMC offers a four-part AMC course this fall; three sessions in December, and a follow-up session before the AMC is administered in February. Priority will be given to high school students whose schools do not offer the AMC contest. (NYMC will help participants find a place to take the AMC.)

While NYMC does not focus on competitions, some competitions are a source of beautiful, intriguing problems, and provide exposure to a variety of interesting mathematics. The American Mathematics Contest (AMC) is such a contest. What started as a local competition sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) in 1950 has become the premier mathematics competition of America--reaching up to 400,000 students today. It is a 25 question, 75 minute multiple choice competition that covers a broad spectrum of high school topics.

A selection of problems from AMC 10 and AMC 12 will motivate the study of deeper mathematical topics and introduce interested students to this competition’s hidden mathematical gems. Check these links for some past AMC problems.

Please read the information pages at AMC 10 and AMC 12 to learn about the contests before applying for this course.
