One Week Away – What’s the Big Idea: A Game Show Featuring Students and Mathematicians

There's still time to register and play along! How will these six mathematicians handle presenting a very big or deep idea in math? We'll find out as our six judges (and you!) cast your votes live. 

We will be using Zoom and Kahoot for this highly interactive event. As a result, it requires a separate registration outside of the NMF Live Performance Series. We hope you'll join us live next week, but a recording of the gameshow will also be made available.

Believe-It-Or-Not, It's Math (x2) is part of the NMF Live Performance Series.
