29 Apr #MathStatMonth

April marks a time to increase the understanding and appreciation of mathematics and statistics. (source)

Why? Both subjects play a significant role in addressing many real-world problems–internet security, sustainability, disease, climate change, the data deluge, and much more. Research in these and other areas is ongoing, revealing new results and applications every day in fields such as medicine, manufacturing, energy, biotechnology, and business. Mathematics and statistics are important drivers of innovation in our technological world, in which new systems and methodologies continue to become more complex. (source)

On Saturday, May 4, 2019, there is a free National Math Festival being held in Washington, D.C.  This free and public celebration has program tracks for adults, middle and high schoolers, as well as elementary schoolers and the very young.  Explore playful and accessible lectures on the math behind how the world works.
