## Walks Through Mathematics

November 10, 2018

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. The AWM will also provide pizza, t-shirts, and take-home prizes for participants!

## REGISTRATION

Registration for Sonia Math Day Fall 2018 is now closed.
