The activities were a great way for me to visualize what I need to do. Also there were instances when we were able to go through an activity, then choose an topic & design an activity that followed the guidelines.
Upcoming Free Math Teachers’ Circle (MTC)
Topic: Fun and Reasoning with Paper Folding and Cutting
Facilitator: Dr. Sunita Vatuk (City College of New York)
Rutgers MTC: June 1, from 4:30 pm to 7:00pm

Brainteaser: Take a rectangular sheet of paper. Try to find a way to fold it (possibly multiple times, without unfolding) so that afterwards, by cutting the folded paper along a single straight line, you cut out a square from the interior of the paper!
What’s in it for you?
- A chance to think about math problems for fun
- A chance to talk informally with other K-12 teachers
- Professional Development (PD) hours
- Free dinner* & No registration fee*
- Attend whenever you can at either location
Bring a guest! You are encouraged to bring an interested fellow math teacher (please let us know your guest’s name and email address).
