An exciting and hands-on day filled with challenging, non-competitive mathematics fun for 5th to 10th graders.

Julia Robinson Math Festivals are celebrations of great ideas and problems in mathematics. This one is held once a year at UNM and offers students in grades 5-10 the chance to interact with mathematicians and find the fun (yes, FUN!) in math!

An exciting and hands-on day filled with challenging , NON-COMPETITIVE mathematics FUN for 5th — 10th graders.

This festival is for any student who comes to it with an open and curious mind and designed
to appeal to a broad audience, not just those who identify as math lovers already.

Food, fun & prizes for all participants!

Table leaders coach small groups to solve problems, complete puzzles and play games that are created to develop every child’s innate skills, talent and love of math!

The goal of a JRMF is not speed, or superficial right answers. Our activities are designed to
engage and perplex. Students should expect to persevere. They will generally spend 30-60
minutes on activities and not finish completely.

Students will have space from their parents during the event - this allows them to make mistakes, work with their peers, and just relax and have a good time. We will have a breakout session for parents to learn strategies and techniques on how to help with math homework and how to keep students engaged and enjoying math throughout their middle and high school years.

This festival is especially rewarding for students that are not traditionally good at math.

Come join us!
