Teachers and high school students are invited to the UW 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 the undergraduate math student experience and careers in mathematics. You can also participate in field trips* to various campus laboratories and facilities to discover how math is put to use every day.

*Access to these field trips is limited. Tickets for field trips and some of the hands-on activities are distributed randomly. Please note that schools receive tickets for approximately half the number of students registered.

Scholarship Information

Wells Fargo and Boeing have generously made a donation to support Math Day attendance by schools with underrepresented populations. The application form should be submitted by January 8, 2016.

We will make every effort to notify applicants if they are awarded a scholarship, and for how many students, before registration opens. If scholarship schools wish to pay to bring additional students to Math Day they must register and pay (with a credit card) for additional students using the online registration system. Math Day fills quickly, sometimes in just a few days, and additional students will only be able to register if space is still available.
