Ages: 8-9

You’ve read about the Egyptian God Horus and the Greek God Narcissus in Rick Riordan’s books. What is mathematical significance of the Eye of Horus? What is the smallest Narcissistic Number? Was Thalia named after Thales? We’ll discuss these concepts, and more, in this Math Circle that explores addition, multiplication, exponents, fractions, a bit of geometry, and, as always, math history. Riordan’s novels are not a pre-requisite for this course. We may add a Part II to this course in the spring at another time.
