Meet and Greet Math

**Meet and Greet Math** gives an opportunity to students from grade 12 to experience what it is like to take a calculus course at Simon Fraser University. This annual half-day event is held typically on a Friday in November at the SFU Burnaby and Surrey campuses.

Students and their teachers are invited to participate in this one day event that consists of the following:

- Attendance to a calculus lecture;

- Participation in an information session conducted by current undergraduate and graduate students and faculty members;

- Participation in math activities conducted by faculty members;

- Visit to the math, science, and computing facilities. In addition, we are also sharing our calculus curriculum and philosophy with the visiting teachers.

Participation is free.

__From Rockridge____ High School Newsletter 2009:__

- Going to SFU was a really great experience for me because I had the opportunity to learn what Math is really all about.
- They also did some cool demos.
- With the use of modern technology, the real world applications of math no longer have the “ugh math class!” feel.
- The short and concise lecture had the regular “scholastic” feel. However, the lab followed by the lecture was anything, but “scholastic”. Comprised of a series of awe-inspiring experiments (with seemingly unexplainable results), the Professors introduced the class to the endless opportunities Mathematics can provide.
