Math Salon - June 15, 2011

You're invited to...
A Math Salon

Timberland Olympia Library (meeting room)
June 15, 2011
5pm to 7pm

A Math Salon is a chance for everyone to get together and play at math. We first heard of the term math salon from Math for Love.  My son and I made the hour-long trek up north to attend our first one a few months ago.  I have never seen him so happy and so outgoing.  We've returned twice since.

So, I decided to try to start a math salon down here.  I don't have a huge selection of games but we have to start somewhere.  If you come, you'll find some dice games like Pig and some games on paper like Hex, Colorful Houses and Sidewalks in Tourist Town, and Euclid's Game.  You find some old favorites like Battleship and Backgammon and some new games that will sure to become favorites like Blokus and Pentago.  You'll find some obvious math in Equate, and you'll find some things to play with like pattern blocks and base 10 blocks.  I have a few more, and I plan to grow our collection as I can.

I hope you can join us.

We just got 4 new games for Math Salon: Pente, Isolate, Sequence, and King's Court!
