Verizon Ballroom of the Arkansas Student Union

The Celebration of Mind is a worldwide tribute to Martin Gardner, who excited generations in mathematics and magic, through puzzles, games and ideas. It was mathematics pursued not for importance or power, but simply for beauty and fun. His long-running column in Scientific American broke stories on advances from the highest reaches of mathematics. He is a personal hero to several members of our department.
This event will engage and challenge students in the spirit of Martin Gardner, as well as demonstrate how the activities can be integrated into the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
