“Arithmetic is about finding one absolute answer. Math is about finding the patterns in life – and as you know, there are very few certainties in life. Arithmetic is just the tool.”
- Pascal (Eureka!)
Scholars in 6th-9th grade will have the opportunity to watch a imaginative comedy called “Eureka!” which is about a girl name Sara the night before her math test. She is visited by mathematicians such as Albert Einstein, Blaise Pascal, Lady Ada Lovelace and Pythagoras. Together they will demonstrate to Sara and to our scholars how math is part of our world. They explore the Pythagorean theorem, number theory, order of operations, probability, prime numbers, the origins of the calculator and more! This educational field trip will spark an interest in mathematics as the code that defines the universe.
