For 12 days every fall well over a hundred thousand people a day have the opportunity to visit a wonderful mathematical playground along with eating corndogs, fresh apples and snow cones.  Math-On-A-Stick is created by Christopher Danielson of Talk Math with Your Kids, and is supported by numerous donors, volunteers visiting mathematicians and artists.  As a visiting mathematician we had to bring something mathematical on something sticklike.  There are numerous ways to get your math on from shapes puzzles for the very young to a pattern machine and number game card for older kids.  Most of all everyone is having a great time!
