August 17&18 Puzzle-Making Online Masterclass

Creating Your Own Math Puzzles masterclass will unpack the process of creating a mathematical puzzle, starting with the open-ended mathematical play that leads us to ask deep questions. How do I start? Where do ideas come from? How do I know if the questions I am asking are mathematical? How do I know if my questions are good ones? We will address all of these questions as we work through the process of creating puzzles together.

  • What: An intensive two-session masterclass on creating puzzles for the young and the young at heart, from concept to sharing.
  • Why: You and your students can do accessible, real math like the pros do it! Learn how open-ended mathematical play leads to deep questions.
  • Who: Math circle leaders, parents, teachers, and teens, with children (ages 5-10) as apprentice puzzle makers. Lead by Dr. Sian Zelbo, the author of Camp Logic and the upcoming Playing with Blocks.
  • When: Live online meetings August 17th and 18th at 8-9 PM EST (New York).

Check out Sian’s seven-step process of making puzzles, and try it yourself at the workshop.
