What is High School Math Day?

NAU High School Math Day is an event hosted by the Department of Mathematics & Statistics each fall. The day is a mixture of friendly competition and mini-seminars presented by our faculty. We hope to provide an enjoyable day for students and teachers with the following goals in mind:

  1. show that mathematics is fun and interesting
  2. show students and teachers that mathematics is useful beyond the high school classroom
  3. encourage students and teachers to pursue further studies in mathematics--perhaps even here at NAU

Who should attend?

The math day is for Arizona high school students. We can accept only the first 185 students who register.  Interested students at any level are welcome.  Students do not need to be taking Calculus, but knowledge of Algebra 1 is assumed.

How many students can each school bring?

Since registration is limited to 185 students, each school should plan to bring no more than 20 students. It is also our hope that there would be one adult for every 10 students.

Will lunch be provided?

We have modified our schedule so that all of our events are finished before lunch. We will provide a mid-morning snack.  After the Math Day events are finished, your group will likely need to eat lunch before heading home. You may choose to bring sack lunches, eat at a nearby restaurant or visit the food court in the Student Union near Cline Library.

What should we bring?

Bring pencils and paper, but leave calculators at home. Clipboards may be useful.

How do I register?

There is no registration fee.  Contact Sal Vera, or reply to his email to register.   This next link might work. Please fill out the form: NAU HSMD Registration Form  by October 10, 2018.   You will be asked to provide the name of your school, the names of all teachers who will be attending, the number of students who will be attending, t-shirt sizes and if you will need a parking permit (see parking information).
