Rational Tangles: Zoom Edition

A Virtual Math Teacher Circle
4 - 6pm PT May 19th, 2022

See how knots, movement and fractions intertwine in Conway’s Rational Tangles!  While typically done in person, this popular activity has been adapted to remote facilitation for a pandemic world.

Presented by Dr. Tien Chih, who has been a Math Circler since graduate school, and while Assistant Professor of Mathematics at MSU-Billings, has run a student Circle for 4 years.  He’s an advocate of math outreach, inquiry learning, and student research.

Please bring the following supplies: a paper plate, 4  binder clips, two ropes/strings and pen/markers to mark up the plate.
