Math Day Registration

April 14, 2022

Math Day is Saturday, May 14th, on The Dalles Campus!

This event is limited to 75 students. To attend, you must RSVP here.

 

Did you know zombies hate Skittles? (Hint: It has something to do with math.)

If you’re a high school junior or senior, you’ll discover this important topic, as well as “How Not to Kill Your Medical Patients When Using Math” and “Under Pressure,” as faculty from Columbia Gorge Community College present the first annual Columbia Gorge Math Day.

Hands-on workshops will show how math is fun as well as a lifelong skill.

 

Sessions will be presented by the college’s chemistry, nursing and electro-mechanical departments (that’s where you learn how to operate wind turbines and other stuff).

 

Check-in starts at 9 a.m. on the third floor of Building 2 with drawing tickets, free t-shirt and pastries. Sessions follow at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Lunch break at noon features keynote speaker Leila Kaneda, a software engineer at Sightline Applications.

 

Math Day wraps up on the college quad at 1:45 p.m. with drawings for some great prizes, such as a new graphing calculator; Visa gift cards for $25, $50 and $100; CGCC Bookstore swag bag and certificates for free continuing education classes.
