What’s the Big Idea: Students and Mathematicians

Dr. Pamela E. Harris was one of six mathematicians who took center stage with the single objective of presenting a very big or deep idea in math to a panel of six youth judges.

The contest organizers hope this competition calls attention to culturally responsive, grounding, and sustaining approaches to engage young people with mathematics.

Each presentation is followed by reactions from the student judges, with scores from audience feedback shared after the last presentation.
