View available sections

Explore major themes in the field of mathematics, from mankind's earliest study of prime numbers to the cutting edge mathematics used to reveal the shape of the universe. Rather than a series of problems to be solved, mathematics is presented as play we engage in to answer deep questions that are relevant in our world today. Mathematics also provides us with a powerful language for uncovering and describing phenomena in the world around us.

The groundbreaking videos, interactive web exploration, text materials, and group activities reveal the secrets and hidden delights of the ever-evolving world of mathematics. This workshop consists of a 13-part multimedia learning resource for high school teachers in math and other disciplines. Visit the course work requirements and the supporting website .
