Recap for January 2014


Well, we are getting a little better keeping the blog up to date. Only a week to go before our next meeting in February!

Let’s blame this one on the intense cold we have been dealing with here in Winnipeg. Again we had perfect attendance. We welcomed back a few regulars who were not able to make our December session.
In the December blog post, we were excited to talk about the math + art exhibition showing at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. This session we were pleased to have our own math artist attend the January MathJam. We enjoyed hearing about the inspirations behind her art work. Those in attendance were able to take home a couple of custom designed cards.

And, of course, I enjoyed the paper momathfolding activities from MoMath (tumbling tetrahedrons).

Recap for December 2013

The holiday season in December changed the traditional MathsJam date in the month. We held our session on December 17. Same time and location. As usual, we had “perfect” attendance 🙂pinwheel origami

We welcomed a new member to the fold – @bkmetcalfe for those of you using Twitter. Brian and I had fun playing “ultimate tic tac toe”, as well as creating the paper folding challenge of the session.

We wereprime play also excited to learn that the Winnipeg Art Gallery was having a special curated feature Math + Art . Several members of our MathJam had been there earlier in the day.

We also played with pairs of integers from 1 to 17, making perfect squares with each adjacent pair.


Lots of fun was had by all.

Cheers, Phil
