“I love the way the theory was proved ... Everything was presented in a simple way and yet the topics were very deep in substance.”

Mass Points (Canceled)

When: April 4, 2020, 3:30pm – 5:30 pm
Where: NYU Courant Institute, 251 Mercer St (map). Room 101.
Instructor: David Hankin.
Fee: None!

The method of Mass Points in Geometry enables you to solve seemingly difficult problems with ease. The talk will include a justification for the method and how to apply it to problems familiar to Math Team adepts. We will progress to some less widely known extensions of the method and to more difficult problems.

Please share this invitation with your colleagues! Note that this workshop is free, but registration is required as we expect to reach capacity.

David Hankin is a highly respected mathematics teacher whose distinguished career spanned four decades at the high school and college levels. In addition, he served as Mathematics Department Chair at Hunter College High School, Chair of the AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination), and is a prolific author of competition questions. Mr. Hankin was instrumental in the creation of New York Math Circle, where he taught until his retirement in 2017.
