Playing Math at the NCTM Regional in Seattle

We were invited, along with the Seattle Universal Math Museum (SUMM) to host a play space at NCTM’s Regional Conference in Seattle that took place earlier this month. The whole team organized materials, and then Matt Hertel and I met in Seattle ready to play math!

Due to the nature of the space, and fire codes and whatnot, we had a large space with three main areas.

A little out of the way, folks had to be looking for us to find us. But their efforts were rewarded with relaxation, make-and-takes, challenges, and giveaways.

Here’s what we brought along:


We had lovely conversations about math, play, and classrooms with attendees, and with the facilitators from SUMM. Here’s hoping we get invited back to a future conference!
