Every year, it is madness—March Madness, actually! Every March, millions of people make brackets with their predictions for the NCAA Division 1 men’s and women’s basketball tournaments. Dr. Tim Chartier, the Distinguished Visiting Professor at the National Museum of Mathematics, is an internationally known expert in bracketology. He has taught the math of March Madness bracket-making to teachers and students across the nation. During this event, you’ll learn how to engage your students in math decisions with a low floor and high ceiling —from math modeling to computer programming. Come and learn how mathematics can help tame the madness.
