    MfA Utah Teachers' Math Circle
    MfA Utah Teachers' Math Circle is a program for teachers who want to play with problems they haven't seen before, and learn some new mathematics. Based partly on a model developed at the American Institute of Mathematics, the focus will be on open-ended explorations of mathematical techniques and problems, with a view toward potential applications in the classroom. Equally important is an opportunity to work with other educators who are as excited about mathematics and teaching mathematics as you are.
    16/17 Schedule
    We will continue to meet on Tuesday evenings, gather at 6:15pm to start circle at 6:30pm at Rowland Hall's faculty lounge. The address is:
    Rowland Hall
    843 Lincoln StreetSalt Lake City, Utah 84102
    Rowland Hall is located near the 9th and 9th neighborhood between Lincoln St. and 1000 East. You may street park along the east side of Lincoln (right next to the school). The faculty parking lounge is only accessible from 1000 East. The main entrance is off of Lincoln St. and should be open but we will post someone at the door if it is locked. Call my cell (801-608-1597) if you show up a little late and are locked out (shouldn't happen... but just in case). All of this is summarized in the figure below.

    In this workshop, we'll answer that question and many more as we explore
    the world of super symmetric polytopes. Along the way we'll encounter
    Plato's perfect solids that motivated his theory of everything, an amateur
    mathematician who taught herself to see the fourth dimension, and the view
    from inside a hyperdodecahedron. Bring your tablets and smart phones for
    full immersion!
