Think About Math! (TAM) is designed to ignite enthusiasm in high school girls for mathematics. It is a workshop demonstrating that math is fun, relevant, and leads to exciting careers.
TAM participants will learn about the lifestyles and career paths of women who have graduated with a degree in mathematics. Girls will also participate in interactive labs and hands-on activities. We will use mathematics to explore topics like the environment, the stock market, and social networking applications like Facebook. All sessions will be led by University of Waterloo faculty members and professional businesswomen and businessmen.
Waterloo - Young women in Grade 9 or 10 from Ontario who have potential in mathematics.
