Sonia Math Day

April 6, 2019

This will be the twelfth Sonia Math Day for 8th-12th grade girls hosted by the University of Illinois Graduate Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).  Through a series of fun, hands-on activities, we will explore abstract algebra and group theory. What if we did arithmetical operations, but without numbers? What is an algebraic structure? The AWM will also provide pizza, t-shirts, and take-home prizes for participants!


Registration closes on March 16. There is no registration fee, but space is limited.

Please notify us of cancellations by contacting Dana Neidinger at
