October Math Circle at the Kingston Library

Our  Kingston Library math circle met for the second time this fall on Saturday. It's very heartening to see the regular faces (each a year older, and growing fast) and the new comers are also a welcome sight.
 There was a lot of great mathematical thinking, as can be seen in this  scratch work.


(note the typo - I forgot to update the date from September's circle meeting)

We had a lot of students  sharing their work on these problems at the end of class.













Each month we also feature a hands on project,  and this month we made a paper cut and glue Curry's Triangle Paradox.

What do you find disturbing in the following picture? The graph paper grid is there intentionally to help measure distances and areas.
