The school of mathematics cultivates a natural and stress-free environment where anyone can study, discuss, explore, and experience mathematics. No prior knowledge is assumed. Whether you are an avid student of mathematics or always shied away saying "mathematics is not for me", you are welcome. Our approach allows anyone to naively discover mathematics. All studies at the school are free of charge.
Each workshop series begins with a short background story which leads to a research question. This question can be understood by all participants, and trying to answer it reveals deep mathematical issues. In many cases, it is a question that had been studied by mathematicians before us. Without looking at any answers, we try to discover our own. We learn to develop our ideas, express them to others and work together. It may take us a few minutes and it may take more than a few hours. If we find an answer, we may look for additional answers. And we ask each other questions during our research which we then try, with the same methods, to answer. To see a few of the topics we've discussed, visit our page of past workshops.
Workshops are held on an ad-hoc schedule covering a wide range of weekday evenings and Saturday mornings, so as to allow anyone—regardless of prior committments—to participate. Events are posted on our Meetup Page as they are scheduled. Please join the (free) meetup group to recieve annocuments as events are planned.
