This video journey is for students with strong ability and interest in math. We will enjoy many fascinating patterns and concepts, including glimpses at prime numbers, factorials, partitions, regular polyhedra, Euler’s formula, the seven bridges of Königsberg, the Möbius strip, pi, the Pythagorean theorem, Fermat’s last theorem, sequences, the golden ratio, Pascal’s triangle, and probability. We will also listen to a few musical math morsels.

Introduction to Python Programming & Math For boys entering grades 6, 7, 8, 9
No experience necessary. Learning to code in Python is easy! We’ll create programs using turtle graphics to draw figures, and create simple animations and games. All this requires some math, which is a lot more fun when the results are seen immediately when running your program. The Python language and editor for creating programs are available for free. Mr. Temple teaches Mathematics at Marquette High, and once worked as a programmer/analyst for Accenture, Boeing and S.C. Johnson. Note, students will need to bring their own computer.
