Student Maypole Experience

This video was created by the students without any suggestions or help from the professors. The students interviewed each other and edited this video clip. They wanted to show to a non-math audience how fun and meaningful "real" mathematics was for them.

Practicing Dame Dos in Salsa Rueda

Student practice dancing salsa rueda in a math for liberal art class.

This investigation is the same as exploring star polygon patterns and also connects to the spirograph activities.
