Unfortunately, Math Day will not be held in 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns. We hope to be able to bring the event back in the spring of 2022.
Math Day is sponsored by the UWG Department of Mathematics
Each school can bring in a maximum of 12 students, 3 for each subject level.
Registration will be closed on February 21, or when 200 students have been registered--whichever happens first.
You will have an opportunity to make substitutions on your roster when you check in on-site at Math Day; however you will not be able to add additional students on-site.
If you have any questions, feel free to email Dr. Scott Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org .
