Registration is full for Math Day 2017!  Often spots do become available so please get on our waitlist for this wildly popular program by emailing the number of students you wish to bring to mathday@uw.edu.

Over 1500 teachers and high school students are invited to the UW Seattle Campus to uncover the exciting, practical and rewarding world of mathematics.  Choose from a variety of sessions throughout the day that cover diverse applications of math such as climate, origami and mobile phones. Listen to panel discussions on UW student life, watch demonstrations and more.  You can also participate in field trips or hands on activities* to various campus laboratories and facilities to discover how math is put to use every day.
