This will be the eleventh 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 hands-on activities, we will explore many types of mathematical walks, such as mazes and random walks.
