Weizmann Institute Math Circle

Take a journey into the world of recreational math

What is the relationship between colored regions on a map to the way we build our school timetable? What is the connection between the tiling that is seen in the art of medieval Islamic building structures to Nobel Prize winning chemical discoveries?

In the Weizmann Institute Math Circle, you are the researcher. We will help you dive deeper into recreational math and expose you to contemporary research questions in the field. We will challenge you with codes, magic, geometry riddles, puzzles and game theory. Leading mathematicians from around the country will give guest lectures and workshops. Participants can login to the program's website where they will find all the lesson summaries, presentations and a vibrant forum.

As a bonus for participating, you will receive an invitation to the National Recreational Math, Puzzles and Games Conference. The conference, dedicated to recreational math, is held every May at the Davidson Institute of Science Education. Interested? Then come join us!
