The more activities you try, the more you ll learn how cool it can be to see the world through the eyes of a mathematician.

Once you've sampled some of the interesting and unique projects in Math Trek, from untangling unknots to winning games with weird dice to figuring out secret codes, you'll see that every trip to the MathZone is an exciting adventure!
